A state court challenge to the Mar. 2, 2022, remedial congressional plan, alleging partisan gerrymandering and improper splitting of government units under state law, following the state Supreme Court’s decisions in Adams v. DeWine and LWV v. DeWine on Jan. 14, 2022, striking the original congressional plan as an unlawful partisan gerrymander.
On July 19, 2022, the state Supreme Court struck the Mar. 2 remedial plan as an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander, and again remanded for the drawing of a new plan. The legislative leadership petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court for certiorari, on the theory that the Elections Clause does not permit state courts or state constitutions to constrain state legislatures in drawing congressional lines; on June 30, 2023, the U.S. Supreme Court vacated the Ohio Supreme Court’s decision and remanded for further consideration in light of Moore v. Harper.
The Ohio Supreme Court will re-evaluate its decision.
