Philippines' ousted Supreme Court chief lambastes Duterte

Philippines' ousted Supreme Court chief lambastes DuterteThe ousted Philippine Supreme Court chief justice launched a blistering attack on President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday, calling him a “self-styled savior who is willing to kill”, after she lost an appeal against her removal from office. Maria Lourdes Sereno, the first woman chief justice of the Philippines who Duterte denounced as an “enemy” for her opposition to some of his proposals, was ousted by fellow-judges allied with the president last month. “Our sights have been set low by the very leaders who should lead us to pursue lofty visions for our nation and our people,” Sereno said in a speech to her supporters after the court ruling.

US Supreme Court deals blow to opponents of political gerrymandering

US Supreme Court deals blow to opponents of political gerrymanderingThe US Supreme Court on Monday rejected two major claims challenging partisan gerrymandering, dealing a blow to reformers seeking to end a practice they say undermines democracy. Many had hoped the court would end once and for all the re-drawing of voting districts by incumbents to disadvantage their opponents. “The Supreme Court missed an opportunity today to lay down a firm marker as to when partisan gerrymandering is so extreme that it violates the constitutional rights of voters,” said Dale Ho, director of the Voting Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union.

Supreme Court sidesteps major rulings on electoral map manipulation

Supreme Court sidesteps major rulings on electoral map manipulationBy Andrew Chung and Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday dealt a setback to election reformers by declining to use high-profile cases from Wisconsin and Maryland to curb the ability of state lawmakers to draw electoral districts purely for partisan advantage. Sidestepping major rulings, the nine justices decided both cases on narrow legal grounds and put off perhaps until their next term, which begins in October, a more definitive ruling on whether courts can step in to limit the contentious practice known as partisan gerrymandering. In the Wisconsin case, the court ruled 9-0 in favor of Republican legislators who drew state electoral districts that helped entrench their party in power, throwing out a lower court ruling that the map had deprived Democratic voters of their constitutional rights including equal protection under the law.

Supreme Court rejects Republican bid to block Maryland electoral district

Supreme Court rejects Republican bid to block Maryland electoral districtThe U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rebuffed Republican voters in Maryland by refusing for now to block congressional district lines drawn by Democrats to maximize partisan advantage. The unsigned decision sidestepped a major ruling on the practice called partisan gerrymandering. Maryland’s Democratic-led legislature reconfigured the district in a way that led to the defeat of a Republican congressman.
