On Monday Reuters reported that the US Supreme Court rejected Republican voters in Maryland by refusing to block congressional district lines drawn by Democrats to maximize partisan advantage. The unsigned decision sidestepped a major ruling on the practice called partisan gerrymandering. The court ruled that with the midterm U.S. elections coming up in November, there would not be enough time to draw new maps. Maryland’s Democratic-led legislature reconfigured the district in a way that led to the defeat of a Republican congressman.
