Texas electoral case difficult for high court to untangle
4 new districts disputed; vote looms in April; House majority may be affected
Several members of the Supreme Court appeared frustrated Monday as they surveyed the available options and looming deadlines in a major voting rights case from Texas that could help decide control of the House. The case is a result of a population boom in Texas, which gained more than 4 million people in the past decade, about 65 percent of them Hispanic. The growth entitles the state to four additional congressional seats.
