US high court orders race-bias review of N. Carolina voting lines

The US Supreme Court rejected Republican-drawn North Carolina voting lines Monday, ordering a review over whether race was used for unfair redistricting, the second such ruling in a monthThe US Supreme Court rejected Republican-drawn North Carolina voting lines Monday, ordering a review over whether race was used for unfair redistricting, the second such ruling in a month. The highest court in the land ordered a North Carolina court to reconsider its decision to allow a 2011 change of voting areas in the southern state. In its decision, the Supreme Court referred to another ruling it made in late March that found Alabama had not properly investigated whether the state’s redrawing of voting districts were motivated by race. Racially-based voting districts can fall afoul of the country’s voting rights law and the US Constitution.
