Michigan Gerrymandering Case

A three-judge panel of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan (opinion per Clay, J.) has handed down an opinion wherein it:

[J]oins the growing chorus of federal courts that have, in recent years, held that partisan gerrymandering is unconstitutional. We find that the [Michigan Redistricting Plan] violates Plaintiffs’ First and Fourteenth Amendment rights because it deliberately dilutes the power of their votes by placing them in districts that were intentionally drawn to ensure a particular partisan outcome in each district.

This opinion may be revised or even overturned once the Supreme Court rules on two “partisan gerrymandering” cases presently before it.

One thought on “Michigan Gerrymandering Case”

  1. Gerrymandering. It’s bad. Don’t do it.

    Now. What do people say to a Biden Harris or a Biden Warren ticket? I say, let’s *not* leave it to the big$$ donors and the early state or millenial voters. Let’s get it right *today.*

    I am suggesting either of these just in the interest of picking whoever has the highest possibility of winning. Honestly I’m not even sure I care who’s at the top of the ticket. Though I think Biden is the safer bet, ‘cause, you know.
