U.S. Supreme Court Will Hear Wisconsin Partisan Gerrymandering Case Next Term

On June 19, the U.S. Supreme Court said it will hear Gill v Whitford, 16-1161. This is the case in which the 3-judge U.S. District Court had invalidated Wisconsin’s legislative district boundaries as an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander. The U.S. Supreme Court did not rule on June 19 on whether to stay the lower court decision. Probably the Court will do so sometime during June, before it adjourns for the summer.
