A panel of three district court judges has rejected a Republican bid to block the new Pennsylvania congressional voting map.

Also: the U.S. Supreme Court has decided not to get involved.

Says Kevin Drum:

If you’re in a pessimistic mood, this ruling doesn’t mean much since the Republican case was really weak from the start. If you’re in an optimistic mood, it might suggest that the Supreme Court is becoming less tolerant of blatant gerrymandering.
