McCrory, lawmakers want courts to declare HB2 doesn’t discriminate – NC Capitol


Raleigh, N.C. — Gov. Pat McCrory and state lawmakers have asked federal courts to declare that House Bill 2 does not discriminate against LBGT people, a reaction to the Obama administration’s demand the state roll back the law.

Lawyers for the governor filed the declaratory judgment action Monday morning, and Republican legislative leaders filed their own action hours later.

“We believe a court, rather than a federal agency, should tell our state, our nation and employers across the country what law requires,” McCrory said during an afternoon press conference. “Right now, the Obama administration is bypassing Congress by attempting to rewrite the law.” (NC Capitol)
