U.S. Supreme Court grants Ohio's request to delay new map in gerrymandering case [View all]

Source: Cincinnati Enquirer

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Friday that Ohio doesn't need to draw a new congressional map right now.

The top court granted Ohio's request to delay a new map until after the U.S. Supreme Court rules on gerrymandering cases in North Carolina and Maryland. A trio of federal judges had requested a new map from Ohio lawmakers by June 14.

Now, Ohio legislators can wait to see what the U.S. Supreme Court decides on other states' maps. A decision on those cases is expected in late June.

The case is "stayed pending the timely filing and disposition of an appeal in this Court or further order of this Court," according to Friday's order.
