Supreme Court halts order requiring Alabama to redraw congressional map

Harper Neidig - 2h ago


The Supreme Court on Monday ruled Alabama's controversial new congressional maps could stay in place while it reviews a legal challenge, overruling a lower court that had ordered the state to redraw its districts in order to give Black voters better representation.

A 5-4 majority granted a stay of a lower court's order that found the gerrymandered districts likely violated the Voting Rights Act, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the three liberal justices in dissent.

In a concurring opinion, Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote that the court's stay will allow the justices to fully hear the case, pushing back the dissenters' criticism that the majority was making a sweeping ruling to gut voting rights without a full briefing from the parties.

"The stay will allow this Court to decide the merits in an orderly fashion-after full briefing, oral argument, and our usual extensive internal deliberations-and ensure that we do not have to decide the merits on the emergency docket," Kavanaugh wrote in the opinion, which was joined by Justice Samuel Alito.

The Supreme Court Drops the Hammer on Democrat Redistricting Games and Sets Up a Coming Death Blow
By Bonchie | Feb 07, 2022 7:00 PM ET

After several days of bad news on the redistricting front, including a bad decision in North Carolina for the GOP-drawn map there, a big win has been delivered to Republicans. The US Supreme Court has ruled 5-4 to halt a lower court order in Alabama that it must redraw its previously passed Congressional map.

That means a 6-1 Republican to Democrat map will now go into effect in 2022, and given the makeup of the Supreme Court, there’s no reason to believe it gets struck down at any point past that.

Once again, Roberts show his colors in the leftists' camp.

Think someone can invite him to go hunting on a rural Texas lodge?
