Gerrymandering fight shifts to NCNorth Carolina’s state legislative districts were unconstitutionally gerrymandered to entrench Republicans in power and must be thrown out, a lawyer for state Democrats and a good-government advocacy group told a panel of judges on Monday.

“Republicans in the General Assembly have manipulated the district lines to guarantee that their party will control both the state House and the state Senate, regardless of how people vote,” attorney R. Stanton Jones said as a civil trial began in state Superior Court in Raleigh. “This attack on representative democracy and voting rights is fundamentally unfair.”

But a lawyer for Republican legislative leaders, Phillip Strach, said the plaintiffs were seeking to use “judicial fiat” to sidestep the electoral and legislative processes.
