BREAKING: 3-judge panel denies Cooper’s request to stop confirmation hearings pending appeal

A three-judge Superior Court panel denied a request Wednesday by Gov. Roy Cooper to halt Senate confirmation proceedings pending an appeal process.

Cooper requested the stay after filing a notice to appeal the panel’s decision that confirmation hearings are constitutional.

The panel’s order denying Cooper’s request Wednesday does not give a reason for the decision.

“Upon careful review of all matters of record and the written submissions of the parties, as well as the statutory and case law cited, the court hereby DENIES plaintiff’s motion for stay pending appeal.”

Cooper’s office has not yet responded to the news, nor has legislative leaders. Check back for updates.
