North Carolina Supreme Court will weigh access to redistricting documents


RALEIGH The new legislative and congressional districts drawn in 2011 by the Republican-led legislature are clear, but the process that produced them was clouded by closed-door politics, some contend.

Lawyers are expected to go before the state Supreme Court on Tuesday morning to argue whether a state legislature that has described itself as “the most transparent” in “modern history” about its motives and criteria for the new districts is illegally holding back documents linked to the process.
