The Possibility of Non-Partisan Maps?

As the Supreme Court seems vexed once again by partisan gerrymandering challenges, we're joined by Benjamin Fliegel and Brian Sutherland (Reed Smith LLP), who represented amicus California Citizens Redistricting Commission in last year's gerrymandering challenge 'Gill v. Whitford.' They explain why courts should enter this political fray, and how California's independent, nonpartisan redistricting body sets an example for SCOTUS and for other states.
