2. 'generally, the Supreme Court is reluctant to require the drawing of new districts before

it has had a chance to review a lower courts ruling that such an action is warranted. . .

A three-judge panel last week invalidated the map drawn by the Republican-controlled legislature in 2016, calling it improper partisan gerrymandering. The decision was the first striking down a congressional map on the grounds that it was rigged in favor of a political party. The court panel ordered lawmakers to redraw the boundaries by Jan. 29.'

It's possible; the 3-judge decision was pretty strong. The lower court would have to be asked to do so.

4. A "states rights" argument would allow whatever type of gerrymandering states permitted. n/t

7. The SC didn't rule against it. They put it on hold until after 2018

9. Yes. A lower federal court ordered NC to redraw their maps and the Supreme Court put a hold....

on that order. There's a major gerrymandering case already before the Supreme Court and a decision in that case
is expected around June.
