The 14-member commission was responsible for drawing state legislative and congressional districts in time for the 2012 elections. The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments Monday, March 2, 2015, on an appeal by Republican lawmakers in Arizona against the state’s voter-approved independent redistricting commission for creating the districts of U.S. House members. A decision striking down the commission probably would doom California’s redistricting system and could affect districting commissions in 11 other states.
