BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court Sets Oral Argument On Legislature's Redistricting Appeal For March 2

The U.S. Supreme Court has set March 2 for oral arguments on the Arizona Legislature's appeal of the Independent Redistricting Commission set up by Arizona voters 14 years ago.

The Legislature's case is based on the argument that the U.S. Constitution requires a state Legislature to handle all aspects of how Congressional elections in that state, and that the constitutional amendment approved by Arizona voters violates that by setting up the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission.

The Arizona case will be heard by the Justices two days before the high-profile case challenging the subsidies in the Affordable Care Act.
