Pat McCrory in the state’s GOP primaries on Tuesday night.Former President Donald Trump-backed Republican Ted Budd beat out former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory in the state’s GOP primaries on Tuesday night.

Despite criticism, Budd, who campaigned on fighting...

    A Pilot Mountain woman who took her 14-year-old son into the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021, is challenging the sentence she received last week - three-months in federal prison followed by three years of probation. Virginia Marie Spencer, 38, pleaded guilty on Sept. 9, 2021, to a misdemeanor charge of parading, demonstrating or picketing in a federal building.

    In 2014, Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA) filed suit against the University of North Carolina. Its complaint argued that the university had engaged in intentional discrimination on the basis of race and ethnicity to the detriment of SFFA members.

In a pair of 2003 cases involving the University of Michigan, the Supreme Court ruled that universities were in violation of the law if they used a rigid quota system (Gratz...
