Three-judge panel temporarily blocks law overhauling State Board of Elections

Multiple media outlets have reported that a three-judge panel upheld Gov. Roy Cooper’s request to block a new law that would overhaul the State Elections Board.

Cooper’s attorney, Jim Phillips of Greensboro, has not returned a phone or email message seeking to confirm the news, and a trial court administrator said she could not confirm it until an order is entered in the case. As of 11 a.m. Friday, an order had not yet been entered.

The judges heard arguments in the case Thursday morning but said they would not be making a ruling from the bench. The Associated Press reported that word about the decision came late Thursday from a court administrator writing to the lawyers in the case on behalf of the judges.

A trial date has not yet been set for the panel to hear the constitutional challenges to the law made in Cooper v. Berger. You can read more about the lawsuit here.
