N.C. Supreme Court rules in favor of legislative leaders in redistricting dispute

The N.C. Supreme Court has ruled today that state legislative leaders did have the right to maintain certain documents from state-funded private attorneys as confidential, turning back efforts from Democrats and left-of-center advocacy groups to gain access to those documents linked to the state’s 2011 redistricting maps.

Justice Barbara Jackson wrote the opinion for the 5-1 majority siding with the Republican-led legislature. Justice Robin Hudson dissented.
