WI Opponents of Partisan Gerrymander File Brief with U.S. Supreme Court

Thanks to Richard Winger of Ballot Access News for this post.

On June 7th, the Wisconsin Voters who Sued their State over its Partisan Gerrymander, and who Won their Case in a Three-Judge U.S. District Court, filed a Brief in the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Voters hope that the U.S. Supreme Court, which won’t decide whether to hear the State’s Appeal until October 2017 at the earliest, will not Stay the Lower Court Decision.

If No Stay is granted by the U.S. Supreme Court, then the Wisconsin Legislature will be forced to Redistrict the Legislative Districts this year, or else the U.S. District Court will do it this year.

The U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether to Grant a Stay at its June 8th Conference, but the News from that Conference won’t be Announced until June 12th.
