Supreme Court To Revisit Voter ID Laws in MAJOR Decision
(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – The North Carolina Supreme Court, which currently is under a Republican majority, has stated that they would rehear a redistricting case and a voter ID case. Both of these cases had previously been lost before the control of the state’s Supreme Court changed last year. Since the original ruling, the redistricting case has now made its way to the US Supreme Court, and the justices are trying to make a decision that could end up altering the authority state courts hold over the configuration of state legislatures’ election rules.
The redistricting case in question, Moore v. Harper was heard by the US Supreme Court in December and a decision is expected to be reached by early summer.
Legal experts have said that the North Carolina Supreme Court’s decision to rehear the case could potentially affect the blockbuster case that has been heard by the US Supreme Court. Currently, there have been no new legal briefs filed as of yet.
The North Carolina court is set to rehearse the case on March 14. This means that they might reach a decision to reverse the previous ruling before the US Supreme Court ever gets to issue its ruling on the case. However, it is unclear whether or not legislators will simply ask the US Supreme Court to drop the case and what the Supreme Court might say to that request.
Previously the Democratically controlled state Supreme Court last year struck down the congressional map that Republican legislators had drawn claiming that the map was in violation of the state constitution.
