Supreme Court cracks the whip on PA gerrymandering suit

The State Supreme Court is moving forward with a lawsuit targeting gerrymandering in the Commonwealth.  The League of Women Voters and numerous individual voters claim districts were redrawn with the purpose of rigging elections.  

The Commonwealth Court chose to delay the trial until late next year, but Thursday, the Supreme Court took control of the lawsuit, ordering the Commonwealth Court to conduct all necessary proceedings in the trial. 

The Supreme Court also gave the Commonwealth Court until December 31st of this year to report its findings.  This decision enables the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to review the matter and make a determination in time for the 2018 election.
