The request for a preliminary injunction, filed late July 5, provides the most extensive look yet at the Justice Department’s argument that the bathroom-access requirements violate federal law. The filing comes just after North Carolina lawmakers left the measure largely intact during their session that ended July 1, all but ensuring that the measure’s fate will be decided in federal court. Republican Gov. Pat McCrory had yet to sign their minor revision into law on June 6. Pressure to change the law has come from business leaders, entertainers and the NBA.

Keith Ross fell back into his seat. He was asked about this Sumner High School senior class. He exhaled and let out a deep breath. “Well, they are 41-5, including their freshman team,” Ross said. “They are probably the greatest group of seniors ever. Since 1977 it’s got to be the most decorated time in Sumner history.” “My wife’s not excited about North Dakota,” Keith Ross said. “But we already have one trip planned.” Sumner had five football signees, and nine athletes total, honored at the school Wednesday morning as part of National Signing Day, coming a year after the Spartans sent Connor Wedington to Stanford University. Sumner will have 12 players in college football next year, counting previous classes. And this year’s class will be at all levels – FBS, FCS, NCAA Division II, NAIA and Division III. Jeff Baines purposefully kept his ceremony speech brief. The Sumner athletic director could have talked much … [Read more...] about Sumner’s ‘greatest group of seniors’ will be at all levels of college football.
