The hearing has begun at this hour to consider a motion to approve or throw out the challenge to the redistricting plans adopted by the NC General Assembly. You can follow this today on the WRAL-TV web where the video of the hearing is streaming along. The arguments today are between the lawyers for the two sides, asking the panel of judges to make a ruling based on the evidence already submitted in writing – briefs, affidavits, interrogatories and other material. If the judges don’t want to rule for one side or the other, the challenge will move to the next stage, which would be a full trial-like hearing with witnesses.
