WISCONSIN — The Wisconsin Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in a redistricting case that could determine political boundary lines in the battleground state for the next decade.

The court could issue a final decision within weeks after hearing the arguments Wednesday that are expected to last all day.

There is also a federal lawsuit pending brought by Democrats that could be taken up after the Supreme Court issues its decision.

The conservative-controlled Supreme Court has ruled that it will adopt a “least change” approach and not make significant alterations to the current maps.

That was a major win for Republicans who don't want to make major changes.
