Supreme Court Allows Court-Ordered Redistricting in Pennsylvania

SCOTUS supports PA redistricting— The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday let a court-ordered redrawing of congressional districts in Pennsylvania proceed, denying a plea from Republicans legislative leaders to block it.

The panel found that this was an infringement upon the president’s proper constitutional powers.
