Strange change on the NC high court

As an institution, the North Carolina Supreme Court is used to settling disputes, not stirring them up, but that’s what’s happened because of a significant amendment to court rules of procedure. Basically, the rule “signed and entered” as it’s called on Nov. 8 allows the chief justice to call back retired justices to sit on individual cases on which the court might be deadlocked. That could happen if a justice had to recuse himself or herself from a case, and the remaining six justices tied 3-3 in deliberations.

Trump can be the NRA’s agent of chaos

In response to Dr. William Schlesinger’s Nov. 23 Point of View “Duke University plant would turn away from renewable energy”: As a student at Duke University, I completely agree that the proposed power plant on Duke’s campus would stain the integrity of this great university and set a shameful example of how an esteemed institution should approach climate action.

Pat McCrory and his Republican enablers are attempting to cast doubts by challenging the findings of the state’s county Boards of Election.

Katie Davenport: Lawmakers, be aware

I would like the members of the state legislature to know that as Gov. Pat McCrory continues to try to subvert the will of the people and steal this election from Roy Cooper, we the voters of North Carolina are watching. McCrory may not have another election in his future, but they do.
