Pat McCrory has declared a lawsuit against the federal government for overreach of government in declaring North Carolina House Bill #2 Discriminative. I have a rebuttal wasn't the state getting involved in Charlotte's business overreach of government?

Breaking News App: North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory filed a lawsuit this morning against the U.S. Justice Department, asking a federal court to state that his state's controversial "bathroom bill" is not discriminatory. McCrory was given until today to notify the DOJ that he would not enforce the law, which the federal government says limits protections for LGBT people, according to NBC News. According to the filed complaint, McCrory accused the federal government of “baseless and blatant overreach.” NBC News also notes that McCrory filed the suit without help from North Carolina's attorney general, Roy Cooper, and turned to private law firms to draft the suit. McCrory will make a statement to the media at 1 p.m. ET today, and we'll cover his remarks and reactions here. - Rebecca

Looks like precedent is on our side: Justice Department ignores crucial precedents on the North Carolina bathroom bill

Titles VII and IX weren't written to equate gender preference with actual gender.

I'm pretty sure Charlotte really belongs to South Carolina anyway.

OH great. Lets spend more money fighting a lost cause. Hopefully voters will remember all of this come November and we can bury this once and for all and move on with things that really matter. What an embarrassment for the state.

This actually explains a lot about what's been going on.

When the Charlotte law passed WSOC called Tim Moore. They reported that he said that they'd look at it when they went back for the short session. The next several days they reported that he was "getting calls ". Then they reported that he would call an emergency session. I've been trying to figure out who was pulling the strings, McCrory or Berger. I think that this puts the onus directly on McCrory & Art Pope.

Since the legislators toyed with the idea of billing the city of Charlotte for the one-day special session, maybe they'll try to foist the legal bills for this lawsuit on Charlotte as well.

Here's a column written by Scott Sexton in the Winston-Salem Journal pertaining to the cost of the legislature's recent legal boondoggles: No end in sight for legal battles involving legislature
