How a Wisconsin Case Before Justices Could Reshape Redistricting

Quicklink Submitted By     (# of views)   1 comment

' How egregiously can a majority party gerrymander a political map before it violates the Constitution?

The Supreme Court has tried to answer that question for 30 years. On Tuesday, it will try again, hearing arguments in a case involving the Wisconsin State Assembly that could remake an American political landscape rived by polarization and increasingly fenced off for partisan advantage.'

The case will be heard tomorrow and the decision is said to rest on Justice Kennedy and on the strength of the arguments pro and con. Otherwise, the usual 4-4 division prevails.

Common Cause and other groups will be protesting in front of the SCOTUS building. I'll try to cover the story. Let's hope that Justice isn't blind tomorrow. Many other states' gerrymandered divisions will be altered toward fair redistricting if Judge Kennedy votes with the 'liberals.'
