SCOTUS Affirms Decision Upholding Maryland Law on “Prison Gerrymandering”

The summary disposition in Fletcher v. Lamone affirms a three-judge district court ruling upholding the state’s “No Representation Without Population Act,”  which requires that, for redistricting purposes, prisoners be counted at their legal home addresses rather than where they’re incarcerated. Demos’ press release heralding the ruling is here.

Update:  The Baltimore Sun has this story on the ruling, and the AP this one.
