Redistricting Lines Stand

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) _ A three-judge panel has upheld the boundaries for North Carolina's legislative and congressional seats that were drawn by Republicans in 2011.
 
The Superior Court judges ruled unanimously Monday in favor of the GOP legislative leaders whose chambers drew the maps by letting the boundaries stand. Democratic voters, civil rights groups and election advocates had sued over the lines, arguing they were racially biased.
 
The judges wrote the boundaries do not impair the constitutional rights of North Carolina citizens as they are defined by law.
 
Those who sued could seek to appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court.
