Dan Bishop Files Federal Lawsuit, Demands More Transparency from NC Supreme Court

Charlotte-area Republican U.S. Congressman, Representative Dan Bishop, has filed a federal lawsuit to demand more transparency from state Supreme Court and Court of Appeals judges whose votes this month prompted the state to push back its 2022 primary by 10 weeks. The complaint , announced last week, criticizes a string of private court decisions, arguing three private votes run counter to “a well-established tradition of public access to the votes of individual justices and judges in the decisions of these courts.”
