Supreme Court Rejects Judge-Drawn Maps in Texas Redistricting Case

US Supreme CourtThe Supreme Court on Friday instructed a lower court in Texas to take a fresh look at election maps it had drawn in place of a competing set of maps from the Texas Legislature. The justices said the lower court had not paid enough deference to the Legislature’s choices and had improperly substituted its own values for those of elected officials.

The court’s unanimous decision extends the uncertainty surrounding this major voting-rights case, which could help determine control of the House of Representatives.

Newt Gingrich: I would ignore supreme court as president

Newt GingrichNewt Gingrich has pledged that on his first day as president he will set up a constitutional showdown by ordering the military to defy a supreme court ruling extending some legal rights to foreign terrorism suspects and captured enemy combatants in US custody.

The Republican contender told a forum of anti-abortion activists ahead of South Carolina's primary election that as president he would ignore supreme court rulings he regards as legally flawed. He implied that would also extend to the 1973 decision, Roe vs Wade, legalising abortion.

New York City Council Votes Against Corporate Personhood, Citizens United

NY City Council votesMissoula, Montana; Boulder, Colorado; and South Miami, Florida, have all done it, but you know it's really catching on when the Big Apple jumps on board.

Iowa: Issues of Integrity for the Iowa Republican Caucus

Iowa CaucusBrad Friedman at Bradblog.com reports on some key procedures in the 2012 Iowa Republican caucus.
