The Monkey Cage & SCOTUSblog ask

In Gill v. Whitford, will the Supreme Court rule that any part of Wisconsin's redistricting plan is an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander?

In November 2016, the District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin ruled 2-1 that the state legislature's redistricting plan was unconstitutional (Reuters, NBC News, SCOTUS Blog). The Supreme Court agreed in July 2017 to hear an appeal (NY Times). Oral arguments are currently scheduled to be heard on 3 October 2017.
