The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday partly stayed a lower court decision in a redistricting case from North Carolina that involved allegations of racial gerrymandering, the ABA Journal reports. The stay remains in effect while the court considers whether to grant cert in the case involving certain state legislative districts. The stayed districts had been found to violate a North Carolina constitutional provision regulating the timing of redistricting, while the others were found to be unconstitutional racial gerrymanders.
