PA Supreme Court says gerrymandered maps violate the state constitution

In brief order handed down on Monday, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court held that that state's gerrymandered congressional maps violate the state constitution. That state's map is so aggressively gerrymandered that Republicans won 13 of the state's 18 congressional districts in 2012, despite the fact that Democrats won a majority of the popular vote — and Republicans have held those districts ever since.
