Supreme Court to Hear Landmark Gerrymandering Case

The U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether gerrymandered election maps favoring one political party over another violate the Constitution, The Washington Post reports. Should the Court find partisan gerrymandering in violation of the Constitution, it could have a revolutionary impact on the next reapportionment, which comes after the 2020 election cycle. The case comes from Wisconsin, where a federal court ruled that the state’s Republican leadership created a map so partisan that it violated the Constitution’s First Amendment and equal rights protections.
