Redistricting practices are the subject of argument in federal courts across the country – including six cases (Wisconsin and Texas among them) that have made their way to the Supreme Court.
The Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law tracks the status and timelines of redistricting litigation.
The resolution to these cases may impact elections as early as this November. The Supreme Court will almost certainly rule on the Wisconsin case prior to the end of the current session in late June, but may rule earlier.
Any ruling against current redistricting practices will be complicated by the potential remedies the courts may order. Watch for our future analysis of potential court remedies.
