Moore v. Harper SCOTUS Oral Arguments Listening Party
Wednesday, December 7, 9:45
On December 7, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Moore v. Harper, a case that asks whether the North Carolina Supreme Court violated the U.S.
Constitution’s Elections Clause when it struck down the state legislature’s illegally gerrymandered congressional
map for violating the North Carolina Constitution. The legislators who created the gerrymander have argued that a debunked
interpretation of the Elections Clause—known as the "independent state legislature theory”—renders state courts and state constitutions powerless in matters relating to federal elections.
Forty eight friend-of-court briefs have been filed supporting the
voters and non-profits challenging the theory.
