On May 24, the US Supreme Court granted the State of Ohio's request for a delay. The highest court should announce rulings in Rucho v. Common Cause (challenging a Republican gerrymander of North Carolina) and Lamone v. Benisek (challenging a Democratic gerrymander of Maryland) before the end of June. These decisions should provide direction for Ohio's gerrymandering case.
Earlier this month, a federal panel of three judges declared Ohio's congressional districts unconstitutional:
"We join the other federal courts that have held partisan gerrymandering unconstitutional and developed substantially similar standards for adjudicating such claims. We are convinced by the evidence that this partisan gerrymander was intentional and effective and that no legitimate justification accounts for its extremity."
