(美国有线电视新闻网)俄亥俄州最高法院周五裁定,该州新绘制的国会地图由共和党控制的立法机构通过,违反了州宪法,因为它“过度偏袒共和党,不利于民主党”。

最高法院的共和党首席大法官加入了三位民主党大法官的多数意见,而法院的其他三位大法官则持反对意见。

在法院命令立法机关绘制“不受党派考虑决定”的新地图后,州立法者现在将有 30 天的时间来绘制新的国会选区计划。

“当庄家提前堆好牌时,庄家通常会赢,”法官迈克尔·唐纳利为大多数人写道。 “这或许可以解释一个通常在全州范围内获得不超过 55% 普选票的政党如何能够可靠地赢得俄亥俄州国会代表团中 75% 80% 的席位。从任何合理的衡量标准来看,这种扭曲的结果只是不加起来。”

法院还发现该地图不适当地分割了几个县。

Ohio's high court overturns new congressional map saying it 'unduly favors' Republicans

(CNN)Ohio's state supreme court ruled Friday that the state's newly-drawn congressional map, which was passed by the GOP-controlled legislature, violates the state constitution because it "unduly favors the Republican Party and disfavors the Democratic Party."

The court's Republican chief justice joined the three Democratic justices in the majority opinion, while the court's three other justices dissented.

State lawmakers will now have 30 days to draw a new congressional district plan after the court ordered the legislature to draw a new map that "is not dictated by partisan considerations."

"When the dealer stacks the deck in advance, the house usually wins," Justice Michael Donnelly wrote for the majority. "That perhaps explains how a party that generally musters no more than 55 percent of the statewide popular vote is positioned to reliably win anywhere from 75 percent to 80 percent of the seats in the Ohio congressional delegation. By any rational measure, that skewed result just does not add up."

The court also found that the map unduly split several counties.
