North Carolina AG says he won’t defend law overriding local anti-discrimination rules

North Carolina’s attorney general said Tuesday that he won’t defend in court a newly enacted state law preventing local governments from passing anti-discrimination rules meant to protect gay, lesbian and transgender people.

Roy Cooper made the announcement one day after a day after gay rights advocates sued the state to seek to overturn the law. The federal lawsuit lists Cooper among the defendants because of his official position.
