    state legislatures the power to draw congressional boundaries without any requirement as to how they draw them--meaning gerrymandering is not prohibited by the constitution--I don't believe it is possible for the Supreme Court to find the practice unconstitutional across the 50 states.

    The solution I'm afraid is to change this state of affairs on a state by state basis.
