Supreme Court Halts Use of Court-Drawn Legislative Maps

The United States’ highest court has put a stop to new state legislative and congressional district maps drawn and instituted by federal judges.

The Supreme Court of the United States has blocked the maps drawn by a federal district court panel in San Antonio. Texas gained four congressional seats following the 2010 census.

The maps created by the panel modified some districts to heavily favor minority and Democrats, changing over half of the 150 Texas House Districts, five Texas Senate districts, and modified all of the state’s 36 congressional districts originally drawn by the Texas Legislature.

The brief order issued by the Supreme Court halts the use of the court-drawn maps. The Court will hear oral arguments in this particular case on January 9th.
