Stay issued on subpoenas in NC election law case

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. A federal magistrate judge has delayed enforcement of her ruling directing North Carolina legislators to hand over some emails and other documents about last year's election overhaul law to groups who've sued to overturn portions of the law.


The stay issued by Judge Joi Peake late last week comes after lawyers for the state and Gov. Pat McCrory formally objected to her decision two weeks ago that legislators couldn't ignore subpoenas demanding the records.


State attorneys insist lawmakers are covered by broad legislative immunity. Those opposed to portions of the law who sued disagree. A District Court judge likely will have to step in.


The elections law reduces the number of early voting days and eliminates same-day registration during the early period. Photo identification to vote begins in 2016.
