Ohio Supreme Court rejects GOP-drawn congressional map

The Ohio Supreme Court has rejected a new map of the state’s 15 congressional districts as gerrymandered, sending the blueprint back for another try

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Supreme Court rejected a new map of state congressional districts Friday as gerrymandered, sending the blueprint back for another try.

In the 4-3 decision, justices returned the map to the powerful Ohio Redistricting Commission, or its map-drawing counterparts in the Legislature, and said they must assure the next plan actually complies with the Ohio Constitution.

Three of seven justices - including Justice Pat DeWine, son of Republican Gov. Mike DeWine, a named plaintiff in the cases - dissented.
