WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is wading into the underbrush of narrow-minded redistricting in a case from Wisconsin.
The justices pronounced Monday that they will confirm either Republican lawmakers drew electoral districts so out of strike with the state’s domestic relapse that they disregarded the inherent rights of Democratic voters.
It’s the high court’s first case on what’s famous as narrow-minded gerrymandering in some-more than a decade, and the outcome could impact elections opposite the country.
The case will be argued in the fall.
A three-judge justice struck down Wisconsin’s legislative districts in Nov and systematic new maps drawn in time for the 2018 elections. That work is proceeding.
