Oral arguments in the Supreme Court case that can bring back competitive elections

Pennsylvania Democrats, represented by Jenner and Block, have brought a constitutional challenge to naked partisan gerrymandering -- that is, when the dominant political party manipulates political district lines to ensure the perpetual re-election of their candidates, even if a majority of voters support the other party.

The oral argument is here and it is a good read (it's fun to see the lawyers and Supreme Court Justices stammer so much).
