Congresswoman Corrine Brown didn’t think her appeal to the Supreme Court had a good chance, which is why she dropped it last week.
Brown was appealing a decision by a three-judge panel back in April rejecting her challenge to her newly redrawn east-west Congressional district.
“I’m not happy with it, but I think it’s the best thing,” Brown says.
After considering with civil rights people and her attorneys, Browns says she agrees this wasn’t “the best case” to go to the Supreme Court.
She also says she considered recent Supreme Court rulings when making her decision.
“I strongly believe what happened in my case was wrong,” she says.
Brown doesn’t think “communities of interest” were considered when her north-south district was redrawn to east-west.
