As we predicted, the US Supreme Court yesterday put a stay on a decision by a three-judge panel ordering the NC General Assembly to redraw the 13 North Carolina congressional district maps. The order was issued January 9, and the three-judge panel earlier this week refused to stay their own order.
This means that the US congressional districts that were ruled unconstitutional gerrymanders will be used again this fall to elect representatives from North Carolina to the US Congress.
Sounds about right.
