No Word from Supreme Court in NC Racial Gerrymandering Case

Today’s Court orders contain no order related to North Carolina v. Covington, one of the North Carolina racial gerrymandering cases (and the case involving the special election for 2017 ordered by the district court and put on hold by the Supreme Court).

We will see, probably later today, if the case is relisted for the next conference. If it is, it means it is still under active consideration as a case the Court could hear.  If it is not, then that likely means the case will be held for the ongoing Bethune Hill (VA) and Harris (NC) racial gerrymandering cases the Court heard earlier this term, and could well be sent back to the lower court in light of whatever decisions are made in those cases.
