A major court ruling came Tuesday when three state judges rules that dozens of North Carolina legislative boundaries are illegal.

A unanimous ruling ordered lawmakers to approve new political boundaries in the next two weeks, and to do so with a greater level of transparency.

The court's decision stems from a trial over the summer, and came as the state braces for the arrival of Dorian, and leaves many questions about what comes next.

On this edition of the podcast, statehouse reporters Gary Robertson and Lauren Horsch wade into the 357-page ruling, and the latest major story in state politics.
