Well shit that doesn't sound right
Tennessee hasn't focused on the aportionment of district lines in decades
Can the courts do anything about it?
It is a political matter and courts usually don't get involved
well that didn't work, i guess we'll have to go the supreme court.
The courts should be able to decide this issue. The text of Article III, section 2 of the U.S. Constitution is clear: “judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution.”
WE rule in favor of Baker 6-2, lower court’s decision that courts could not hear this case was incorrect. We instructed the District Court to allow a hearing on the merits of Baker’s claim that the state’s legislative districts violated his 14th Amendment rights.
.... was later nothing found in the constitution that instituted a manner for how states draw district lines
