Alonzo, et al. v. Schwab, et al.: Petition for Writ of Certiorari

Court Level
Supreme Court

Plaintiffs have filed a petition for the United States Supreme Court to review the decision of the Kansas Supreme Court. The Kansas court had reversed the lower court’s ruling the that Kansas congressional map was intentionally racially discriminatory. The state supreme court held that discriminatory intent is only unconstitutional if it prevents the formation of a majority minority district, contrary to what other courts have held. The Petition asks the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case and reverse the Kansas Supreme Court’s ruling.
