Latest court decision in the long-running North Carolina redistricting case. The Supreme Court vacated a District Court ruling that legislators elected in November 2016 in what the court considered to be racially gerrymandered districts would serve only one year and new elections would have to be held in November 2017.  From the Cornell University Law School Legal Information Institute
