Ohio Supreme Court Dismisses Legal Challenges Against GOP-drawn Congressional Maps

The state's highest court dismissed the cases without comment

Congressional district maps previously deemed unconstitutional by the Ohio Supreme Court will be used in 2024 after the high court dismissed legal challenges against the Republican-drawn districts on Thursday.

The Ohio voting-rights groups that brought forward the challenges moved to dismiss their own lawsuits against the Republican-drawn maps earlier this week, saying the turmoil isn't in the best interest of Ohio voters. The maps were found to be unconstitutional by the court several times for unfairly favoring Ohio's GOP.

Despite the maps being deemed unconstitutional before the 2022 elections, they continue to be used due to Republicans essentially letting the clock run out after refusing the court's order to write up new, fairer maps by the prescribed deadline.
