State Supreme Court adopts redistricting back-up plan
The State Supreme Court has decided not to adopt a back-up plan for re-drawing Wisconsin's Assembly and Senate districts.
In September, a judicial committee said the court should appoint a group of appeals judges to draw up new boundaries if the Legislature fails to do the job itself.
But Thursday, the justices voted 4-3 to scrap the idea and to consider legal challenges only after somebody files them.
The Supreme Court first considered the back-up plan in 2007.
