FEATURING EZRA ROSENBERG – The US Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments in two cases on redistricting, one in Virginia, the other in North Carolina. Republican controlled state legislatures have spent years brazenly redrawing district lines to favor their party, with much of the lines appearing to be drawn along race, a process called “gerrymandering.”
How will the Supreme Court, which is still operating with one less seat, decide these cases?
