With the 2018 midterm elections nearing and a gerrymandering case under review in the U.S. Supreme Court, partisan gerrymandering is a hot topic right now. It is also an important issue for Pennsylvanians, whose voting districts are considered some of the most gerrymandered in the country. This issue is on trial in Philadelphia in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in the case of Agre v. Wolf.
The trial is open to the public and will begin on Monday, December 4. It will start after pretrial motions wrap up, at about 10:30 a.m. Plaintiffs will present their case from Monday morning through mid-day on Wednesday. Defendants will present their case from Wednesday afternoon through mid-day on Friday.
