In League of United Latin American Citizens v. Perry, the Supreme Court held that a statewide challenge to the Texas State Legislature's mid-term redistricting plan did not violate Section Two of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, but that the redrawing of district lines in one particular district (District 23) did violate the Act. The case leaves open the ability of the Supreme Court to adjudicate political gerrymandering schemes in cases where equal protection claims are made.
