“GOP legislators ask altered North Carolina maps be delayed”


The GOP lawmakers’ lawyers filed Sunday a motion asking the federal judges stay their order accepting new boundary lines from a special master while legislators appeal that order to the U.S. Supreme Court. They want a decision by Monday because they plan to request a similar delay before the Supreme Court if the judges deny it.

On Friday I explained why such a stay request in this racial gerrymandering case is not likely to fare as well as other recent stay requests to the Supreme Court.
