This article discusses what future, if any, political gerrymandering claims have in light of the Supreme Court's decision in LULAC v. Perry, the Texas redistricting case. The article also examines the various methods and standards that have been proposed, and ultimately rejected, for measuring partisan gerrymandering claims since the Supreme Court first addressed the issue in 1986. Finally, the article considers the effectiveness of the political gerrymander as a method of political party entrenchment.
