Commentary: Thomas W. Ross

Late last month, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to decide North Carolina's gerrymandering case, Rucho v. Common Cause, and ordered further review by the lower court. This outcome followed earlier deferrals on redistricting cases out of Wisconsin and Maryland. Along with Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement, these decisions tell us that we are a long way from clear judicial determinations on the constitutionality of partisan gerrymandering and we should not count on the courts to fix the problem.
