Will Supreme Court
end gerrymandering?
Or protect it?
When North Carolina’s Republican legislative
leaders have seen their work struck down in
court as unconstitutional — as they have many
times — they have frequently responded by
attacking the judge or judges as partisan hacks.
That approach won’t work if the conserva-
tive-leaning U.S. Supreme Court surprises the
nation by throwing out the congressional district
map that N.C. legislators explicitly drew to elect
as many Republicans as possible.
The court on Friday agreed to hear a chal-
lenge to the North Carolina map, as well as
one to a Maryland congressional district. That
was big news, because while the court has
