OHIO: ACLU Wins US House Gerrymandering Case

The Associated Press reports:

A federal court has ruled Ohio’s congressional map is unconstitutional and has ordered a new one be drawn for the 2020 elections. A three-judge panel of the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati ruled unanimously Friday that district boundaries were manipulated for partisan gain by Republican mapmakers and violate voters’ rights to democratically select their representatives. The ruling blocks Ohio from holding another election under the current map. The ruling is likely to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
