A federal judge has blocked a law redrawing the electoral map of the Greensboro City Council.
Earlier this month, the General Assembly passed a law redistricting the council. It also makes Greensboro the only city in North Carolina barred from altering its own electoral districts or form of government in the future. The city council, along with a group of citizens, immediately challenged that law in federal court, saying it violated both state statues and U.S. Constitutional guarantees of equal protection under the law.
