Deep Dive: Partisan Gerrymandering Back at SCOTUS
On this edition of SCOTUS Deep Dive, we’ll take a look at the partisan gerrymandering challenges out of North Carolina and Maryland that the court will hear in back-to-back arguments March 26. Partisan gerrymandering has confounded the Supreme Court for decades, as the justices have struggled to find a neutral, manageable way to root out extreme partisanship. The justices considered the question just last term in cases out of Wisconsin and the same case from Maryland. But they putted those on procedural grounds. The issue, however, has once again bubbled back up to the court. Paul Smith and Misha Tseytlin—who faced off last term in Wisconsin case—describe the differences this time around, as well as the potentially huge stakes in play.
