Taylor v. McKeithen, 407 U.S. 191 (1972)

Taylor v. McKeithen

No. 71-784

Decided June 12, 1972

407 U.S. 191


The District Court in this litigation involving legislative reapportionment, after extensive hearings, approved a plan that departed from historical boundaries as necessary to avoid dilution of racial minority voting strength. The Court of Appeals, without opinion, reversed, adopting Louisiana's plan retaining those boundaries.

Held: Absent an explication of the reasons for its summary reversal of the District Court, the Court of Appeals' judgment is vacated and the case remanded.

Certiorari granted; vacated and remanded.
