Supreme Court Punts On Partisan Gerrymandering

The Washington Examiner reports:

The U.S. Supreme Court sent back a partisan gerrymandering case from Wisconsin that challenged the legislative map drawn by Wisconsin Republicans to the lower court.

With its ruling, the high court tossed out a ruling from a district court and sent the case back. It ruled against Wisconsin Democrats who argued state Republican lawmakers engaged in partisan gerrymandering when it drew its state legislative map in 2011.

With its decision, the justices said the plaintiffs in the case, Wisconsin Democratic voters, did not have standing to bring the case.
