U.S. Supreme Court Justices seemed divided during oral arguments Tuesday in Wisconsin’s redistricting case, which involves a challenge to the state’s Republican-drawn legislative map. The outcome of the case, Gill v. Whitford, could have implications that reach beyond Wisconsin. We turn to Wisconsin Public Radio’s State Capitol Bureau Chief for the latest news from inside the courtroom. We also talk with a political scientist about the challenges the court faces as it weighs this case, plus look at what’s ahead.
