Back to the Re-Drawing Board

Republican lawmakers are asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to reconsider its redistricting ruling.

Attorneys for the legislature on Friday asked the new liberal-majority court to take a second look at their decision to toss out Wisconsin’s political maps. The Republicans are specifically challenging the tight timeline to draw new maps, those maps are due to the court by the end of next week. Republicans are also arguing that the Supreme Court pre-decided the case, again pointing to when Justice Janet Protasiewicz called the maps ‘rigged’ during last spring’s election. Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos last week said he intends to take the appeal to the United States Supreme Court if need be.
