If you ever needed proof that Democratic judges are so low they can walk upright under a pregnant cockroach, Justice Anita Earls is the living proof. She sits on the Supreme Court of North Carolina and should recuse herself when there is a large conflict of interest. The case for the Democrats was argued by her former law partner and the lawsuit was funded by a megadonor to her campaign.
In my opinion, she should be impeached because she ruled in favor of the side with a close friend and someone who contributed a ton of money to get her elected to the court. That sounds a lot like quid pro quo to me, but in reality, it is probably a case of ideology over the law. This is an activist and the voters should remember this when she runs for reelection.
In the 2020 election, there were three seats available and the Republicans took all three including 2 flips. In 2022 there are two contests both of them held by Democrats. Republicans need to win just one of those seats in order for the court to be dominated by the Republicans. North Carolina has moved to the right after suffering through the tyrannical left.

What you need to know here is that North Carolina has been moving to the right and have elected many Republicans in recent years. Should this trend continue through the 2024 election, North Carolina will no longer be a swing state but a deep red one instead.
Another thing you should know is that this order from the court because control of redistricting has been granted to the state legislatures and this decision, violates the separation of powers. The judicial branch is usurping the legislative branch and the constitution does not grant the judicial branch that right.
The Court’s decision is anti-democratic. In 2020, North Carolina voters elected Republicans to control both chambers of the Legislature to draw redistricting maps and elected Republican judges for all three of the available North Carolina Supreme Court seats. In fact, NC voters chose Republican candidates for all eight available statewide judicial seats. This ruling steals from the voters the choice that they made.
Adding to the injustice, the ruling also ignores centuries of judicial and legislative precedent and contradicts any plain reading of the North Carolina Constitution. That point was emphatically made clear by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Paul Newby, in his dissent as he accused the Court of violating the long-standing separation of powers rules “by effectively placing responsibility for redistricting with the judicial branch, not the legislative branch as expressly provided in our constitution.“
