Supreme Court faces major decision on partisan gerrymandering


ㅤ"The court has two cases before it to resolve in the coming weeks – Gill v. Whitford, a challenge to Wisconsin’s 2011 redistricting plan, and Benisek v. Lamone, a challenge to the lines of Maryland’s 6th District, currently represented by Rep. John Delaney (D).
