Steinhardt v. N.J. Redistricting Comm’n (also In the Matter of Establishment of Congressional Districts by the NJRC)
No. 086587 (N.J. S. Ct.)
A state challenge to the congressional plan passed by the New Jersey Redistricting Commission, based on the tiebreaking independent member’s alleged decision to select the Democratic plan because the Republican plan had been selected in 2011.
On Feb. 3, 2022, the state supreme court rejected the challenges and dismissed the case, holding that the court’s role in reviewing a prooposed map is to evaluate only whether the redistricting map itself is unlawful, and not the decisionmaking process.
