Wisconsin Supreme Court Abdicates on Redistricting

The Wisconsin Supreme Court, which had been developing protocols for use in case of a redistricting court battle, recently decided to stop doing so according to the Associated Press. During the last round of redistricting in the state, the legislature asked the court to get involved in breaking a legislative deadlock, but it declined to do so citing its lack of expertise on the issue. Since then the court had appointed a committee to develop protocols for an anticipated reprisal after the 2010 census, but the court recently voted 4-3 to stop that work.
