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.
