Supreme Court Says Constitution Does Not Bar Partisan Gerrymandering

The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled against the challengers
opposed to partisan gerrymandering, the practice in which the party
that controls the state legislature draws voting maps to help elect its
candidates. The vote in two cases was 5
to 4, with the court’s more conservative members in the majority. The
court appeared to close the door on such claims.
