Repubs will likely stall it with appeals straight through the election.

Scotus already told them to go pound sand and it's based on state law so there's nothing more to appeal. State SC is the last stop.

Pennsylvania is one of the strongest examples of the geographic packing disadvantage for Democrats. Almost all of their voters pack into Philly or Pittsburgh, so even with neutral drawing of boundaries, they still need more than 50% of votes to get 50% of seats. Can't really fix that too much without completely changing the system to proportional representation. And I think it's only going to get worse as anyone who can flees rural areas
