Supreme Court Issues Opinion in North Carolina Racial Gerrymandering Case

Scroll down to page 18 of the orders and you will find a per curiam opinion in the Covington case.

No big surprise here. The Court agrees that the district court had the power to cure racial gerrymanders it found, but it could not also correct purported violations of state law (an issue not before it).

Justice Thomas would have set the case for a full argument.
