WHEATLEY HEIGHTS - Residents living in Wheatley Heights are suing Suffolk County, claiming new legislative district lines are unconstitutional.

The new district lines split the community into two different districts, an act the residents call unconstitutional and say will cut the power of the vote within the community.

The Suffolk County Legislature approved the new lines in June by an 11-5 vote.

Residents say that issues in their community will be harder to resolve because they will have to work with two legislators.
