Alabama guilty of gerrymandering
See this story, where a federal appeals court ruled that in AL 12 districts were gerrymandered along racial lines. They also ruled that AL must re-draw these districts before the 2018 election on more objective criteria. Similar federal rulings previously came down in North Carolina and Wisconsin. It is no coincidence that in all these cases it is States controlled by Republicans that want to disenfranchise minorities.
