Political gerrymandering is back before the Supreme Court this term in two cases, one of which is Rucho.
2/8: The American Civil Rights Union Asks the Supreme Court for Clarity in the Tortured Lower Court Decision of New Jersey Second Amendment Case
1/3: The Supreme Court will hear oral argument in this case on February 27, 2019, and a decision will be rendered before the end of June 2019.
9/11: The ACRU urges the Supreme Court to apply the right against excessive bail to the states through the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the Constitution which applies only to U.S. citizens.
7/27: The ACRU filed an amicus brief in support of a Petition for Writ of Certiorari in the Pennsylvania redistricting case.
4/10: The ACRU filed an amicus brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in Greater Birmingham Ministries v. Merrill, arguing that the appeals court should hold that Alabama’s voter-ID law is permitted by the federal Voting Rights Act.
3/9: President Donald Trump’s "extreme vetting" policy has been attacked by the Left. In his amicus brief at the Supreme Court, the ACRU’s Ken Klukowski argues why Proclamation 9645 is fully consistent with the Constitution.
3/7: The Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s map likely fails its own gerrymandering standards, because it skews so heavily democratic. The map submitted by the ACRU had more compact districts and fewer political subdivision splits.
2/20: The American Civil Rights Union has submitted a map to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which by all accounts is superior to all other submitted maps.
2/5: ACRU tells the Supreme Court that the district court undermined judicial credibility by imposing a last minute legislative map on North Carolina, using a series of highly novel factual findings and legal theories.
