Abstract

Since the 1980s, North Carolina’s redistricting efforts have highlighted the legal battles over racial and partisan gerrymandering claims since the Gingles case. The 1990s saw key U.S. Supreme Court decisions regarding the use of race in the state’s redistricting efforts. The 2000s witnessed the continued controversy over racial dynamics when it comes to redistricting as highlighted by a North Carolina state court case that the U.S. Supreme Court ratified. Finally, North Carolina’s 2010 redistricting efforts brought both racial and partisan dynamics to a legal head at both the federal and state level.
