Explainer: Harper v. Hall

The redistricting case out of North Carolina scheduled to be argued on Tuesday, October is Harper v. Hall. It’s related to Moore v. Harper, which SCOTUS will hear this term. Moore involves an earlier North Carolina decision holding that North Carolina’s congressional map was gerrymandered in violation of the North Carolina Constitution. Harper v. Hall involves both the congressional and state senate maps and is about how to fix unlawfully gerrymanders. After the North Carolina Supreme Court held that the state’s congressional and state legislative maps were unlawfully gerrymandered, the General Assembly redrew them.
