BREAKING NEWS! A three-judge federal court just issued a ruling and judgment finding that North Carolina's 1st and 12th congressional districts are unconstitutional gerrymanders. Judge Gregory wrote the opinion for the majority. Judge Cogburn concurs with a short statement about the harms of gerrymandering, and Judge Osteen concurs that CD1 is racially gerrymandered, but thought that race did not predominate in CD12.
