Breaking News: SCOTUS Overturns Judge-Drawn Maps in Texas

More from the NYT, NPR, and USA Today

NPR provides a good summary of the decision:

"A plan for how to redraw Texas' congressional and state legislative districts that was put together by a three-judge federal court in San Antonio was rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court this morning because, the justices ruled, the lower court should not have disregarded the Texas state legislature's wishes and should not have stepped into that legislature's shoes."
