Supreme Court announces shocking ruling following midterm elections

The Supreme Court announced a surprising ruling just days after the midterm elections involving the congressional map of Texas.

The court dismissed a case that claimed the latest maps were unconstitutional, offering a win to conservatives in the state.

The ruling

"At the center of the dispute is Senate District 10, which is centered in Fort Worth in Tarrant County. Challengers argued the map was redrawn to make it more Republican and 'more Anglo,'" CNN reported.

"A panel of three judges on a district court conducted four days of hearings and held although the new state Senate map may 'disproportionately affect minority voters' in Tarrant County, and although the legislature may have given 'pretextual reasons' for its redistricting decisions, the challengers could point to no evidence indicating that the legislature's 'true intent was racial,'" it added.

The background

"The voting rights groups asked the court to take the case and said that it was too high of a burden to prove that race was the predominant factor in drawing the maps," the Conservative Brief reported.

"It comes days after a former anti-abortion leader alleged that the person who leaked a Supreme Court decision prior to the decision on Roe V Wade ending has been found, and it is a bombshell," it added.

The case is one of several that Democrats are seeking to use to change districts in six states.

The Texas case offers hope that the left may fail in the challenge, leaving the maps intact for 2024.

The new battle will unlikely be over mapping but instead will focus on voting in the 2024 election.
