HuffPost: SCOTUS Prepares to Hear Case that Could Put an End to Hyper-Partisan Gerrymandering
A case challenging the partisan gerrymandering of Wisconsin legislative districts will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court on October 3. The court has a historic opportunity to curb the high-tech, gerrymandering that locks in one party control for at least a decade.
Now a new poll shows that 71 percent of voters want to remove partisan bias from redistricting even if it means their party may not win as many seats.
Voters in Wisconsin who don’t believe the rules should be rigged to give one party imperial power, will have Paul Smith, “one of the biggest legal guns in the country” of the Campaign Legal Center to represent them.
Smith may be the most experienced redistricting attorney in the nation. He has argued 19 cases before the nation’s highest court and several redistricting cases.
