SCOTUS Again Rejects Alabama’s Gerrymandered Maps

HeadlineSep 27, 2023

The Supreme Court rejected Alabama’s bid to use a Republican-gerrymandered congressional map that includes only one majority-Black district. It’s the second such ruling in just three months, after the Supreme Court in June ruled the map violated the Voting Rights Act and ordered Alabama to include another majority-Black district in the seven-district state. Over one-quarter of Alabama’s population is Black. A special master was appointed in the case and proposed three new congressional maps that abide by the Supreme Court order; a three-judge panel will select one of the maps.
