In Wisconsin Redistricting Case, Supreme Court Sides With Republicans

In a disagreement over voting maps for the state’s legislative districts, the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of Wisconsin’s Republican-led legislature.

SCOTUS overturned a Wisconsin Supreme Court decision that favored the plan created by Democrat Gov. Tony Evers and returned the issue to the state for reconsideration.

Dissenting Opinion

“This Court’s intervention today is not only extraordinary but also unnecessary,” dissenter Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor wrote.

The high court has recently denied similar redistricting cases from North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
