Mayer Brown achieved an important victory in the US Supreme Court for pro bono client Stephen M. Shapiro in Shapiro v. McManus. The court ruled 9-0 that a case filed by Mr. Shapiro challenging Maryland’s 2011 redistricting map is entitled to be heard by a three-judge federal district court. Mr. Shapiro argued that a single-judge district court prematurely threw out his challenge to the state’s redrawing of its congressional districts.

Mayer Brown Litigation & Dispute Resolution associate Michael Kimberly (Washington DC) prepared and delivered the written and oral arguments.
