The U.S. Supreme Court made two high-profile decisions last week to close out their 2018-2019 session.

The nation’s high court decided in a 5-4 vote that federal courts don't have the constitutional basis to hear cases that challenge extreme partisan gerrymandering. Ohio will have to wait until 2021 to see a new map drawn by legislators.

The court also decided against the Trump administration's plan to inlcude a citizenship question on the 2020 census, but the majority opinion, written by Chief Justice Roberts, left open the possibility of future consideration. 

Today on All Sides, the Supreme Court’s decisions and their potential future impact.
