United States Supreme Court

Shapiro v. McManus, 14-990

In an action requesting that a three-judge court be convened to consider a claim that Maryland's 2011 congressional redistricting plan burdens petitioners' First Amendment right of political association, the Fourth Circuit's judgment, affirming that no relief could be granted for this claim and dismissing of the action instead of notifying the Chief Judge of the Circuit to convene a three-judge court as required by 28 U.S.C. section 2284(a), is reversed where section 2284 entitles petitioners to make their case before a three-judge court.
