The U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled Wednesday that the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission did not violate the principle of "one person, one vote" when it redrew the state’s legislative district.

Joseph Kanefield is with the law firm Ballard Spahr and represents the commission. He said, "The voters put in place this independent commission to draw these maps and to remove that process from the Arizona Legislature. This decision, which was unanimous, holds that the commission’s map and the minor population deviation between the largest and smallest districts was done for legitimate reasons primarily to comply with the Voting Rights Act."
