My new home state - reason #5,473

Great move by the North Carolina Supreme Court.
From The Washington Times:

North Carolina Supreme Court sides with GOP lawmakers in congressional map dispute
The North Carolina Supreme Court overruled a prior decision Friday that had implemented a court-drawn congressional map over one designed by Republican lawmakers.

The previous ruling reasoned that the GOP lawmakers had gerrymandered their map.

However, after Republicans took control of the state’s highest court, the new GOP-majority bench reheard the dispute in a rare move. Then it issued a decision saying courts should stay out of the political process.

“The courts are not designed to be thrust into the midst of various political disputes. Such engagement in policy issues forces courts to take sides in political battles and undermines public trust and confidence in the judiciary. Choosing political winners and losers creates a perception that courts are another political branch,” wrote North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Paul Newby.

“We are designed to be a government of the people, not of the judges. At its heart, this case is about recognizing the proper limits of judicial power,” he added.

Love that last quote: "We are designed to be a government of the people, not of the judges"
No legislation from the bench - passing rulings that have the same effect as a law.
Want to make a law?  Run it through the House and the Senate and have the Governor sign it into power.
The way our Founders intended.
