The U.S. Supreme Court Affirms Ruling In Pennsylvania Against Gerrymandered Map

Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday denied a request by Pennsylvania Republicans to delay redrawing the state’s gerrymandered congressional map, according to a report in Circa News.

Last month, the state supreme court ruled that the partisan district map favored Republicans and violated the state’s constitution and ordered Pennsylvania’s GOP-controlled legislature to submit a new map by Feb. 9.

Republicans argued that would not be enough time to redraw the map and asked the U.S. Supreme Court to delay the redrawing until after the 2018 midterm elections.

Last week, Republican State Sen. Joe Scarnati wrote a letter to the state Supreme Court calling the ruling unconstitutional.

“In light of the unconstitutionality of the court’s orders and the court’s plain intent to usurp the General Assembly’s constitutionally delegated role of drafting Pennsylvania’s congressional district plan, Senator Scarnati will not be turning over any data identified in the court’s orders,” wrote Brian Paszamant, Scarnati’s attorney, according to CNN.
