Supreme Court sides with Texas in a blow against Democrats

June 25, 2018

In a split decision of 5-4, The Supreme Court of the United States has upheld Texas controversial redistricting plan that was introduced by a Republican held legislature.Civil rights groups had argued that the new districts were “gerrymandered” which harmed minority Hispanic and black voters.

The decision of 5-4 upheld all districts minus one which overturned the 3 Panel Federal panel that had ruled against the State of Texas.

The panel had provided changes in the lines as drawn by the Legislature which the State put into place. Justice Samuel Alito wrote, “these facts gave the Legislature good reason to believe that the court-approved interim plans were legally sound.”

House District 90 was the only district that the Court upheld as “impermissible racial gerrymander.”
