U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Attempt to Nullify Will of N.C. Voters


Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) and House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) issued the following joint statement Tuesday after the U.S. Supreme Court halted a lower court’s ruling to throw out the results of the 2016 legislative elections.

“We are grateful the U.S. Supreme Court has quashed judicial activism and rejected an attempt to nullify the votes of North Carolinians in the 2016 legislative elections.”

Legislative districts drawn by the General Assembly were pre-cleared by the Obama Justice Department and twice upheld by the state’s elected Supreme Court.
