NC: “Wake-Mecklenburg maps stand as GOP drew them, with hours left before candidates file”

News and Observer:

A panel of judges rejected a request from Democrats and voters who filed the first lawsuit this decade challenging North Carolina lawmakers’ redistricting plans to provide relief from election districts in Wake and Mecklenburg counties they contend are unconstitutional.

The decision came on Monday hours before candidates are set to begin filing for office.

The t]hree superior court judges noted time constraints in their decision and said that while the challengers might indeed have issues appropriate for the state court to consider, they did not arise from the Dickson case.
