SCOTUS Denies Expedited Review of North Carolina Partisan Gerrymander Leaving Voters in Limbo

February 6, 2018; Press Release, Status Update

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court denied the motion for expedited review of Common Cause v. Rucho in the wake of the Court granting a stay in the case after a unanimous decision from a three-judge federal court had ruled North Carolina’s congressional districts unconstitutional and ordered them redrawn by January 24, 2018.

Common Cause Urges SCOTUS to Expedite Review of North Carolina’s Partisan Gerrymander to Protect Voters

January 23, 2018; Press Release, Status Update

Today, Common Cause filed a motion in the U.S. Supreme Court in Common Cause v. Rucho urging the court to expedite its review of the case in order to provide relief to North Carolina voters in time for 2018 congressional elections. Last week the Supreme Court granted a stay in the case after a unanimous decision from a three-judge federal court had ruled North Carolina’s congressional districts unconstitutional and ordered them redrawn by January 24, 2018. In today’s brief the successful plaintiffs argue that hearing the North Carolina General Assembly’s appeal on a slower standard schedule will unfairly result in North Carolinians voting this November in congressional districts ruled to be an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander. This would be a fourth congressional election cycle using an unconstitutional map.

Common Cause Urges Supreme Court to Reject Stay Request for Order to Redraw North Carolina Congressional Districts

January 17, 2018

Today, Common Cause filed a brief in Common Cause v. Rucho urging the U.S. Supreme Court to reject a stay request of a federal court ruling which ordered that the North Carolina Legislature redraw the state’s unconstitutionally gerrymandered congressional districts by January 24. The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina Middle District ruled last week that the Legislature had unconstitutionally drawn congressional district lines with the intent and effect of creating a severe partisan advantage for one side.
