Supreme Court blocks lower court rulings on Texas districts

WASHINGTON (AP) - A divided Supreme Court is blocking lower court rulings that ordered Texas to redraw some congressional and legislative districts.
 
The 5-4 order issued late Tuesday means the state almost certainly will hold elections next year in districts that were struck down as racially discriminatory.
 
The court's four liberal justices, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, would have allowed the redrawing of the affected districts.
