Supreme Court Rules on Texas Redistricting

The courts ruled on League of United Latin American Citizens et al. v. Perry, Governor of Texas, et al. Also known as, the Texas Redistricting case.

SCOTUS Blog has some details and the 132 page decision.

On a first reading, it appears the districts will generally stay the same with a possible redrawing of CD 23 creating a possible Ciro Rodriguez vs Henry Cuellar rematch. It also appears to be legal for political mid-decade redistricting as long as it doesn't violate the voting rights act.

More to come afer I go to law school.

Doing some extra work, check out TexasKos and the debate over there and here is some good info on how this will affect the TX-23 and TX-28.
