In Moore v. Harper, will the Supreme Court rule that the North Carolina courts did not have the legal authority to strike down the NC General Assembly's congressional districting maps?
Closing Jul 01, 2023 07:01AM UTC
In February 2022, the NC Supreme Court struck down congressional district maps approved by the state General Assembly as "illegal partisan gerrymanders" (Politico, NC Supreme Court Decision). NC House Speaker Tim Moore appealed, asserting that the federal constitution vests the legislature with the sole authority to regulate federal elections (Oyez, SCOTUSblog). The Supreme Court is expected to hand down its decision in its 2022 term, but if it does not, the question will close as "No." If the Court decides this case without addressing this question's particular issue of law, the question will close as "No."
