League Statement on the Supreme Court Agreeing to Hear Gerrymandering Case

Wisconsin Case Will Have National Impact on Redistricting

WASHINGTON - The Court today agreed to take up the partisan gerrymandering case from Wisconsin, Gill v. Whitford.  It will be heard next term, which begins in October and runs through June 2018. 

The Court also granted the State's request for a stay, which blocks the lower court’s ruling that new district maps must be drawn by November of this year for elections in 2018.
