The U.S. Supreme Court recently issued opinions in two significant Georgia voter redistricting cases: Georgia v. Ashcroft and Cox v. Larios. These cases are only a representation of the issues Georgia has encountered in its redistricting processes in the past two decades. In the 98th Sibley Lecture titled “A Tale of Two Cites: The Supreme Court and Georgia’s Recent Redistricting,” Stanford Law Professor Pamela S. Karlan examined the Georgia redistricting processes and how they have led to numerous court challenges.
