WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court won't hear a challenge from Illinois Republicans who want a Democratic-drawn legislative map thrown out.
The high court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno and other Republicans. They say the maps drawn by Democrats were gerrymandered to benefit the party and were unconstitutional. The lower courts have thrown out their complaints.
