READ: Supreme Court Thwarts Arizona Legislature In Redistricting Case

The U.S. Supreme Court denied the Arizona Legislature in its bid to overturn the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission formed by voters 20 years ago.

In a 5-4 decision, the Justices found that Arizona voters can set up the redistricting commission.


Also in Supreme Court news about Arizona-related cases on this last day of the term, the Justices declined to consider ex-Arizona Congressman Rick Renzi's appeal of his conviction on bribery and insurance fraud.  And, the Court also declined to hear the Kansas/Arizona appeal that the states had a constitutional right to impose their own requirements on federally-mandated voter registration forms.
