Pa. Supreme Court Issues New Congressional Map

In its per curiam decision, the court said the map “draws heavily upon the submissions provided by the parties, intervenors, and amici.” Like the Jan. 22 decision to invalidate the previous map, Monday's ruling again drew dissents from Chief Justice Thomas Saylor, Justice Sallie Updyke Mundy and Justice Max Baer.
