Many states are seeing rulings on redistricting cases including at the country’s Supreme Court. From the recent announcement by the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law:
At the Supreme Court, the Justices are expected to decide by the end of June whether to hear an appeal of a ruling striking down Wisconsin’s state assembly plan as a partisan gerrymander. Meanwhile, trial begins June 26 in North Carolina in two partisan gerrymandering cases seeking to overturn the state’s 2016 congressional plan, and in Texas, a three-judge court will hold trial starting July 10 on claims that the state’s 2013 state house and congressional plans unconstitutionally discriminated against African Americans and Latinos and violate the Voting Rights Act.
There’s more: In Maryland, plaintiffs have asked the court to issue an injunction blocking use of the state’s congressional map in the 2018 election, and, in Pennsylvania, a new partisan gerrymandering case has been filed challenging that state’s congressional map.
A round up of where these and other key redistricting cases currently stand can be found here. Here is some info about the Brennan Center:
The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to improve our systems of democracy and justice. We work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. The Center’s work ranges from voting rights to campaign finance reform, from ending mass incarceration to preserving Constitutional protection in the fight against terrorism. Part think tank, part advocacy group, part cutting-edge communications hub, we start with rigorous research. We craft innovative policies. And we fight for them — in Congress and the states, the courts, and in the court of public opinion.
