The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled on Monday in a 4-3 decision that the state’s Republican members of Congress won’t be able to submit a new version of their proposed state political maps in the case to decide the boundary lines for the next ten years of Wisconsin elections.
The court’s three liberal-leaning justices were joined by conservative Justice Brian Hagedorn.
Late last month, Republican Reps. Scott Fitzgerald, Bryan Steil, Mike Gallagher, Tom Tiffany and Glenn Grothman filed to submit an amended version of the map they had submitted in the case. The court ordered the other parties in the lawsuit, which include the Republican-led Legislature, Gov. Tony Evers and progressive political organizations, to file responses on whether or not they believe the new map should be allowed.
