Breaking: Gerrymandering of NC House & Senate Districts Ruled Unconstitutional

A separate panel of judges on the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond has now ruled that the gerrymandering of NC House & Senate districts is unconstitutional, but the court declined to force redrawing of existing maps until after the elections of 2016.

In other words, some members of the NC House & Senate will continue to run in unconstitutionally gerrymandered districts, but come 2017, the General Assembly must redraw the House & Senate district maps.
