The US Supreme Court on Friday said it would hear arguments over whether Virginia's Republican-led legislature unlawfully considered race when drawing congressional districts by packing black voters into one Democratic-held district, diluting their clout elsewhere.

The nine justices will hear an appeal by current and former Republican members of the US Congress challenging a June 2015 lower court ruling that threw out the majority-black district, which is held by Democratic Representative Bobby Scott, who is black. The court will also decide whether the members of Congress have standing to pursue the challenge
