In a potentially landmark lawsuit, Common Cause and the N.C. Democratic Party Friday launched the nation’s latest challenge to partisan gerrymandering. The suit, filed in a federal court in Greensboro, follows a long parade of redistricting litigation in North Carolina. It’s also one of several suits around the country contesting the use of partisanship in drawing political boundaries.
