North Carolina Supreme Court Directs General Assembly to Redraw Districts

In a 4-3 party-line vote, the North Carolina Supreme Court has ordered that North Carolina Congressional and legislative districts be redrawn.
NC House Speaker Tim Moore said, “While we are still analyzing this order, I strongly disagree with the majority opinion. The majority opinion is not based in law, precedent, or the history of this state, but rather the political whims of 4 out of 7 justices.”
He continued, “As the Chief Justice eloquently wrote, this decision ‘…. violates separation of powers by effectively placing responsibility for redistricting with the judicial branch, not the legislative branch as expressly provided in our constitution.’”
