Supreme Court takes up fight over Texas electoral districts

Supreme Court takes up fight over Texas electoral districtsBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear a bid by Texas to revive Republican-drawn electoral districts for state legislative and U.S. congressional seats that were thrown out by a lower court for diminishing black and Hispanic voters’ clout. The justices were divided 5-4, with the five conservatives backing the Texas Republicans and the four liberals dissenting, suggesting they could be similarly divided when they eventually rule on the merits of the case. The case is the latest in which the justices will ponder a practice known as gerrymandering in which state electoral districts are drawn in a way that amplifies the power of certain voters — in this case white voters — at the expense of others.
