The case of Galmon v. Ardoin involved a challenge to Louisiana’s congressional map for allegedly diluting the voting strength of Black residents.

The Supreme Court had previously ruled to block Louisiana’s gerrymandered map, but the Fifth Circuit’s writ of mandamus was left in place.

Justice Jackson issued a brief statement clarifying her concurrence with the decision and emphasized the need for a new map to be created quickly.

Endorse

“First, nothing in our decision not to summarily reverse the Fifth Circuit should be taken to endorse the practice of issuing an extraordinary writ of mandamus in these or similar circumstances,” Jackson wrote.

Delay

“I read the Fifth Circuit’s mandamus ruling to require the District Court to delay its remedial hearing only until the Louisiana Legislature has had sufficient time to consider alternative maps that comply with the Voting Rights Act.”

State’s appeal

“Therefore, the District Court will presumably resume the remedial process while the Fifth Circuit considers the State’s appeal of the preliminary injunction,” the justice added.
