WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Supreme Court decided Monday to hear a group of cases involving a Texas redistricting plan that gave the GOP six additional congressional seats.

Justices will likely hear the cases in April to consider whether redrawing the districts reduced minority voting strength.


Hopefully this can set up a nationwide non-partisan issue regarding the drawing of political maps.
