AG Schimel Statement on Gill v. Whitford U.S. Supreme Court Decision
MADISON, Wis. – Today, in a unanimous decision, the United States Supreme Court vacated the lower court’s order in Gill v. Whitford to have Wisconsin’s State Assembly maps redrawn. All nine United States Supreme Court Justices agreed with the State’s position that plaintiffs lacked standing to bring the lawsuit challenging Wisconsin’s redistricting maps. Attorney General Brad Schimel issued the following statement in response.
“I am pleased that the highest court in the land has unanimously reversed the trial court’s erroneous decision invalidating Wisconsin’s Assembly map. Today is a win for the rule of law in Wisconsin, and a testament to the talented attorneys at the Wisconsin Department of Justice.”
