Wendy Tam Cho: “Technology-Enabled Coin Flips for Judging Partisan Gerrymandering”

The following is a guest post from Wendy Tam Cho:

The Court has issued a stay in the Ohio and Michigan partisan gerrymandering cases, and we await their rulings in North Carolina and Maryland.  I was an expert witness in the Ohio case, for which I generated more than 3 million simulated maps.  In that case, we spent some time emphasizing how the new technology enables a judicially manageable standard for the Court.  The argument addresses the concerns that Justices Gorsuch and Alito, in particular, raised in oral arguments in Rucho and Benisek.  I have summarized the argument in my just published Southern California Law Review Postscript article.
