BREAKING: Appeals Court Halts Candidate Filings


The NC Court of Appeals put a temporary hold on candidates filing in any and all legislative districts covered by the recent remapping -- US Congress, NC House, and NC Senate -- while the court weighs a legal challenge to those districts. How long the hold may last -- that goes unanswered.

Appears that candidates for other local offices can go ahead with filing, which opened today at noon.

Also unclear if the ruling represents the thinking of a 3-judge panel, the whole court, or merely a simple majority.

Written arguments from plaintiffs and defendants have to be submitted to the court by Thursday.
