Once again by the familiar 5 4 vote, and once again with a majority opinion written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the Court ruled in two cases that worked their way through lower courts that voters and state officials should be the arbiters of what are political disputes, not the federal government. This cop out by the Court's conservative wing ignores the reality that through gerrymandering, it is elected officials who are introducing politics into what should be the apolitical process of establishing voting districts, and the voters are unable to resolve those disputes when gerrymandering successfully negates their votes. Justice Roberts even went so far as to note that gerrymandering "is incompatible with Democratic principles," yet he and the other justices declined to remedy the situation.In a withering dissent, Justice Elena Kagan called the decision "tragically wrong," adding that "for the first time ever, this court refuses to remedy a constitutional violation because it thinks the task beyond judicial capabilities." A Court that has been activist in nature in recent years did indeed pick a tragically wrong time to throw its hands up and walk away.
