Supreme Court upholds new Virginia legislative maps

Virginia’s legislative elections this year will happen under new court-ordered maps, after the Supreme Court ruled with a five-justice majority saying the state’s GOP-led House doesn’t have the ability to step in and pursue a court case as Attorney General Mark Herring, a Democrat, has surrendered.

The SCOTUS did not rule the Republicans racially gerrymandered, they only said the Republicans didn't have the authority to appeal to the SCOTUS without the backing of the Attorney General. It's kind of stupid though, since the Attorney General is a democrat who would never support a Republican appeal... I do look forward to the SCOTUS rulings on Maryland's and North Carolina's gerrymandering on the grounds of partisanship, though.

I don't think the term "democrat friendly" is very apt. How about fair?
