US Supreme Court overturns ruling in Michigan gerrymandering case: What it means

E-mail Print PDF
Michigan gerrymandering caseThe U.S. Supreme Court on Monday morning officially overturned a ruling which had called for nearly three dozen congressional and legislative districts in Michigan to be redrawn because they unfairly helped one political party.

The decision — which vacated an earlier ruling made by a three-judge panel by the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati — had been widely expected since the Supreme Court decided in June that it would allow state courts to decide questions about political boundary lines rather than ruling on them itself.

"Partisan gerrymandering claims present political questions beyond the reach of the federal courts," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in that decision involving cases brought regarding political boundary lines drawn in Maryland and North Carolina.
