U.S. Supreme Court Stays Lower Court Order to Redraw North Carolina Congressional Map

North Carolina –  This just in.  The U.S. Supreme Court has stayed a lower court order to redraw North Carolina’s congressional districts.  That court recently found the North Carolina map to be an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander and ordered that the map be redrawn in time for the 2018 elections.  Does this mean the court will likely overturn this case in the end? 

No one can be sure.  Should the Supreme Court uphold the lower court ruling later this year, this would mean North Carolina has conducted several elections under an illegal map; 2012, 2014, 2016, and now 2018.  Here is some initial analysis from election law guru Rick Hasen.
