The US Supreme Court on December 7 decided to hear a plea to determine the constitutional validity of a law that limits the appointment of judges based on their political affiliations in order to achieve balance in court. 

The law within the constitution of the state of Delaware prohibits judges affiliated with any one political party to constitute more than a “bare majority” on all of the state’s courts to establish a balance between political ideologies. 

The petition claims that the provision violates US citizens’ right to freedom of association under the First Amendment.
