Pennsylvania Supreme Court issues remedial congressional map

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court Monday issued a remedial congressional map in accordance with the deadline set out in their January 22, 2018, order finding the 2011 congressional map unconstitutional.

 

The map, developed using the evidentiary record developed at the Commonwealth Court level and the maps submitted by parties to the League of Women Voters case; intervenors; and amici, was endorsed by four of the seven state supreme court judges and made with the assistance of special master Nathan Persily, a Stanford Law School professor used by other states in the drawing of legislative maps.
