Just putting this out there. Decision of the US Supreme court this morning. Not much information about why. I believe they have a couple of cases pending before them.
The Supreme Court on Friday blocked lower court rulings ordering Republican legislators in Michigan and Ohio to redraw U.S. congressional maps ahead of the 2020 elections, dealing a blow to Democrats who had argued that the electoral districts were intended to unlawfully diminish their political clout.
So for those two states, the Germandering will continue for the next presidential election.
Personally: I think congressional districts should be blind. As close a population as possible with no racial, political, or anythning else looked at. Should be as close as possible to county lines first. Then cities, then neighborhoods.
