Gill v. Whitford

Legal Filings

On October 3, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court heard Gill v. Whitford, a landmark case that could for the first time in U.S. history set a nationwide limit on extreme partisan gerrymandering. Common Cause worked closely with the Campaign Legal Center, which litigated the case, and the Brennan Center for Justice to organize states, cities, bipartisan current and former elected officials, academics, civil rights and good government organizations, and others to speak with one voice against the manipulation of legislative districts for political advantage. Briefs in the case can be found below.
