WILL responds to SCOWIS declining legal motion asking to redraw Congressional Maps

The News: The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) has responded to a ruling from the Wisconsin Supreme Court, declining a request to redraw the Wisconsin Congressional maps adopted in Johnson v. WEC.
The Quotes: Rick Esenberg, WILL President and General Counsel, stated, “This matter was settled two years ago and there is no need to redraw the congressional maps. The request to redraw these maps was both procedurally improper and legally wrong, and we are glad the Court has declined the invitation to revisit this matter.”
Petitioner’s Motion Was Meritless: The current congressional maps—proposed by Governor Evers and adopted by the Court in 2022—are constitutional and comply with all applicable state and federal laws. While the Supreme Court recently found that the state legislative district maps from 2022 were unconstitutional because they were not literally contiguous, that is not so for the Congressional maps. The request to redraw the Congressional maps amounted to little more than an attempt for a “re do” of this case from years ago.
