Summary: This brief, filed by the Republican National Committee, argues, among other things, that the Appellees lacked standing to challenge the constitutionality of Wisconsin’s electoral map on a state-wide basis. The RNC also asserts that the Supreme Court should define any partisan-gerrymandering case of action narrowly to avoid undue congressional interference with state elections. The RNC and Michael T. Morley are co-counsel for this brief.
Summary: This brief, filed by the Southeastern Legal Foundation, argues that Appellees’ state-wide challenge to Wisconsin’ map represents a generalized claim of injury, rather than an individualized injury, and thus Appellees lack standing to bring their partisan-gerrymandering claims. The Southeastern Legal Foundation and the law firm Strickland Brockington Lewis are co-counsel for this brief.
