The U.S. Supreme Court is putting a stay on a lower court's ruling that the Louisiana legislature must redraw the state's congressional districts.
The lower court had said the Voting Rights Act required the creation of a second predominantly black district.
The stay is in effect pending the outcome of a similar case in Alabama that the justices will consider after the start of their new term in October.
The Supreme Court's 6-3 ruling on Tuesday means the Republican-drawn map will still be in place for the 2022 elections.
