THE Court ultimately took a pass...

WAS THIS IN THE NYTIMES?  NO BUT...  WASHINGTON POST

ALSO IN WASHINGTON TIMES:
The Supreme Court agreed to weigh in on the full argument about "citizen-ship" question in short form.


AND FROM NBC NEWS:

FROM ABOUT TOWN:
The request that everyone fill out the "short form" has always been a joke, IMHO.  The "sample" long form has given way thru the years to a floating sample ("ACS")
Since the U.S. Census operates on the "honor system" (see article directly above from NBC) it is not 100% accurate and never has been.  Only good for analysis but not the legal kind.

What is "gerrymandering in 2017?"
This CNN article describes what might result perhaps in time for the 2020 census???  And the Supreme Court to hear a case questioning partisan gerrymandering:  http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/sep/26/supreme-court-to-hear-gerrymandering-arguments/

Previously, About Weston kept track of SCOTUS session by session, from 2007-2008 until 2014-2015.  The Court's search function is a better source.  About Town makes up trick questions...and expresses this website's opinions.
