Prof. Ledewitz discusses Pa. Supreme Court gerrymandering opinion
The Morning Call interviewed Law Professor Bruce Ledewitz for a story about the Pennsylvania Supreme Court majority opinion declaring the state congressional map unconstitutionally partisan.
Even some dissenting justices acknowledged that Pennsylvania's congressional map, produced by a Republican Legislature in 2011, was unfairly gerrymandered, writer Tim Darragh quotes Ledewitz.
"The majority of justices - all Democrats - failed by not getting a Republican to join them. If they had put off the order to redraw the lines now, and instead ordered new boundaries for the 2020 elections, they could have had a bipartisan opinion," he [Ledewitz] said.
"It just looks like more partisanship."
