High court upholds additional NY Senate seat

The seven-member Court of Appeals, the highest court in New York State, today upheld a Republican Party plan to add one seat to the state Senate, upping the body to 63 members.

The Court ruled that Senate Democrats did not satisfy the "heavy burden of establishing the unconstitutionality" of the GOP plan.
