AG Schimel Statement on SCOTUS Decision to Take Redistricting Case

Jun 19 2017

MADISON, Wis. – Earlier today, the Supreme Court of the United States agreed to decide the redistricting case, Gill v. Whitford, after the maps were struck down last year by a divided three-judge panel in the Western District of Wisconsin.

 

Attorney General Brad Schimel released the following statement in response to the Court’s decision.

 

"I am thrilled the Supreme Court has granted our request to review the redistricting decision and that Wisconsin will have an opportunity to defend its redistricting process. As I have said before, our redistricting process was entirely lawful and constitutional, and the district court should be reversed."
