North Carolina Challenges Redistricting Ruling
On Friday, North Carolina filed an emergency motion with the U.S. Supreme Court to issue a stay on the federal appeals court ruling that North Carolina must hold special elections in November 2017 for General Assembly seats in unconstitutionally gerrymandered districts.
The legislature would need to redraw districts by mid-March to comply with the ruling. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts set the deadline for a response in the case for January 9, 2017.
