NC Seeks #SCOTUS Stay in Congressional Redistricting Case

North Carolina has filed this emergency stay request with Chief Justice Roberts.  The three-judge lower court has denied the stay filed in that court.

I think the Supreme Court is very likely to grant the stay even if, as likely, it upholds the judgment in this case on the merits. As I’ve explained, absentee voting has already occurred in these elections. The Supreme Court has been very wary of allowing court changes to election rules just before the election. (See this paper on the Purcell Principle).
