Judges Order New Maps for All 13 NC Congressional Districts
This news broke after 5 p.m. yesterday: The same three-judge panel that last month ordered new NC House and Senate district maps has now ruled that all 13 congressional districts in the state exhibit the same evidence of "extreme partisan gerrymandering." The 2020 primaries may have to be delayed if new maps aren't drawn in time for the candidate filing deadline in December.
The Republicans in the General Assembly can still appeal the ruling, but Berger-Moore did not appeal the previous order last month to make new maps for some NC House and Senate districts -- which, incidentally, the three-judge panel approved yesterday.
