North Carolina health officials say six people died from complications of the flu last week, helping to raise the death toll for the 2019-20 season to 41. The Winston-Salem Journal reports the death toll includes two deaths from previous weeks. The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services cautions the weekly report count does not represent all flu-associated deaths in the state because many go undiagnosed or unreported.

North Carolina judges have told the state to pay $102,000 to the winning side in a recent legislative redistricting case and the outside expert who helped analyze redrawn district lines. A three-judge panel directed the bill on Wednesday to Republican legislative leaders who were sued by Common Cause and Democrats. The court in September threw out dozens of state House and Senate districts drawn in 2017, saying Republicans fashioned them with extreme partisan bias designed to keep the GOP in power.

The National Park Service says more than 100 sea turtles stunned by recent cold temperatures have washed up on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The agency said on its Facebook page on Wednesday that approximately 95 green and Kemp's ridley turtles washed ashore on Tuesday on the south side of Hatteras Island. In addition, the park service says another 10 turtles were found on Wednesday morning at Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The turtles were taken to the N.C. Aquarium on Roanoke Island for rehabilitation.

Legal arguments to North Carolina's voter photo identification law are still being heard in state courts even after a federal judge blocked the mandate for the March primary. Lawyers for voters who sued over the ID mandate and for Republican legislative leaders who helped enact the 2018 law argued Wednesday at the state Court of Appeals. A trial court last summer denied the voters' request to block voter ID. The voters appealed that decision.
