Watching this Supreme Court case with great interest. The fact that Congressional redistricting has acquired its own word when it goes poorly ("gerrymandering"), and the fact that this issue is phrased so narrowly (is a redistricting commission constituted by the state legislature equal to or less than the "state legislature"), makes this a fascinating legal question with far reaching implications for all citizens.
