Mr. Storey talked about oral arguments, which would be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court later that day, on the constitutionality of a Pennsylvania congressional redistricting plan. The plaintiffs alleged that the Republican-controlled state legislature had engaged in gerrymandering designed to benefit Republican candidates, and furthermore that this action violated the plaintiffs' Fourteenth Amendment rights. The defendants argued that the state legislature’s redistricting plan was constitutional. Mr. Storey responded to audience telephone calls, faxes, and electronic mail. The case is Vieth v. Jubelirer. close
