NO ONE HAD THAT VOTE IN FANTASY SUPREME COURT:

In an unusual split, the Supreme Court dismissed a challenge to findings of racial gerrymandering in Virginia districts ( Tim O'Donnell, 6/17/19, The week)


Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote the majority opinion, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Neil Gorsuch. Justice Samuel Alito wrote the dissenting opinion, backed up by Chief Justice John Roberts, and Justices Stephen Breyer and Brett Kavanaugh.

Ginsburg argued that the House Republicans don't represent all of Virginia. "One House of its bicameral legislature cannot alone continue litigation against the will of its partners in the legislative process," she wrote.
