The New Jersey Supreme Court on Thursday voted 5-0 to side with Democrats and dismiss a GOP lawsuit that asked the court to remand the map to the redistricting commission for further consideration and require the tie-breaker commissioner, former Supreme Court Justice John Wallace, to recuse himself.
NJ SEED: The Court’s rapid and unanimous response to the GOP challenge gives the Democrats an important victory. Ever since redistricting was taken out of the hands of the legislature, Democrats have astutely managed to have their maps accepted more often than the Republicans.
