U.S. Supreme Hearing Cases On Gerrymandering
For a second consecutive term, the U.S. Supreme Court has taken up the issue of partisan gerrymandering, hearing arguments from North Carolina and Maryland.
Gerrymandering has been quite influential in recent legislative and congressional races, and the court has the ability to reshape approaches to map drawing — depending upon how the majority decides. And based upon the questions and comments of the justices, another 5-4 ruling may be in the offing.
