BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court Rules Federal Courts Do Not Have A Role In Gerrymandering Cases

BREAKING: The Supreme Court of the United States says that federal courts do NOT have a role in partisan gerrymandering cases.

Michigan currently has appealed a federal court's decision to the Supreme Court disputing claims that a Republican-led Legislature previously drew Michigan's district lines to their party's advantage.

The lower court ordered the state Legislature and governor to agree on new lines for certain districts for 20-20.

This decision will likely end that lawsuit - leaving Michigan's lines exactly how they are for the next election.

However, after the 20-20 election, the new method for drawing district lines will begin. That method involves a panel and was voted into law via a 20-18 ballot measure.
