Court Refuses to Block NC Maps, Rules Election Will Proceed

Today a three-judge panel denied a request from Democratic plaintiffs to block new congressional and legislative maps, a delay that would prevent upcoming elections from proceeding as scheduled.
North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore said, “We are very pleased with the court’s ruling today. It is good news for North Carolina, and now it is time to move forward so that the election process can begin and the people of North Carolina can make their voices heard. Today’s ruling was a huge win for North Carolina voters.”
