Pennsylvania Redistricting

Upheld by the Supreme Court, but the door was also left open to future legal challenges to gerrymandering. The predictable if disturbing graf:

Four court conservatives would have gone even further, by limiting future legal attacks on gerrymandering, the practice of drawing voting districts to favor a political party.

Kennedy dissented with them on that point, but went along with them to allow the current gerrymandering to stand. In a case that held promise for its even being heard, a typically disgusting partisan split is the result. Ugh.

Ed.- Check out the Pennsylvania districts maps here. Shame you can't see the whole state too well. -degs
