In a move that is likely to benefit the GOP, the US Supreme Court tossed out a court drawn map in Texas. That map had tossed out one drawn by the Texas legislature.
Since the ruling was unanimous it is not possible for the Democrats to argue bias in this case. The ruling stated that the court exceeded its authority in making the changes. Instead it should have only changed district lines where it was likely they violated either the Voting Rights Act or the Constitution and past court rulings. Otherwise the review should defer to the legislature.
The court did not end the process, instead it told the court to draw a new map that followed the original more closely. But it is highly unlikely a new map could be drawn and approved in time for November so the current GOP leaning map will probably be used this time around.
The original map is expected to gain the GOP 3-4 seats while the court map was expected to gain the Democrats 3-4 seats.
