Not only were the challenges rejected, but the judge ruled that the plaintiff failed to prove either of their claims. Ouch.
WRAL with emphasis added:
RALEIGH, N.C. — A federal judge has rejected challenges to how North Carolina lawmakers redrew the maps for Wake County school board and county commissioners races.
“In sum, plaintiffs have failed to prove that either the 2013 Wake County School Board Plan or the 2015 Wake County Commissioners Plan violates the one person one vote requirement in the United States and North Carolina constitutions,” U.S. District Judge James Dever wrote at the end of a 108-page order he signed Friday. “Plaintiffs also have failed to prove that the 2015 General Assembly racially gerrymandered District 4 in the 2015 Wake County Commissioners Plan.”
The challenge to the districts was brought by the Raleigh Wake Citizens Association, an organization that promotes the interest of black voters in Wake County, as well as individual plaintiffs.

Wake School Board crying here.
About the Raleigh Wake Citizens Association
There is very little out there on this group, however a Google search on them produced Left leaning website links, Democrat candidate endorsements, references to Moral Monday and other related activities.
Allegedly in existence since 1932, there is no official paper trail on this group. Where does their money come from? Are they a non-profit?
