Court has given NC legs until 1/24 to adopt remedial plan (must be filed with court by 1/29). But also asking parties to propose special masters to redraw map if court rejects any lege plan. But, of course, state likely to ask SCOTUS to stay. #fairmaps 7/

More partisan gerrymandering action ahead next week when the Pennsylvania Supreme Court hears a challenge to that state's congressional map (along with NC one of the most aggressive of the decade).… #fairmaps 9/
More on the worst congressional maps of the decade in our Extreme Maps report from last year.… #fairmaps 10/
