Supreme Court refuses to get involved in case about the size of the US House

"In a second decision finally resolving a case, the Supreme Court ruled summarily that federal courts have no authority to hear a lawsuit claiming that the U.S. House of Representatives must be increased beyond its present 435 seats, in order to bring about more equality among the states in their representation. The Court wiped out a ruling by a federal District Court in Mississippi, and ordered it to dismiss the lawsuit “for lack of jurisdiction.” The decision came in the case of Clemons, et al., v. U.S. Department of Commerce (10-291)."
