Redistricting a second time in decade?

Ok, let's talk about a hypothetical here. I'll preface it with this: In 2001 the Texas legislature was unable to agree on redistricting maps. So, maps were drawn by a redistricting board. Then when the lege came back in 2003, they attempted to redistrict again. From that, we got the Killer D's and Dems hightailed it to Oklahoma. Unfortunately, it only delayed the inevitable. The districts were redrawn again. Texas was sued. In the Supreme Court Case, League of United Latin American Citizens v. Perry, it was determined that states are free to redistrict as often as desired.

So hypothetically, Dems take Texas back in 2022 or 2024, could they/would they redistrict again, drawing fair maps?
