Courts - In light of the 4th Circuit opinion, North Carolina AG Roy Cooper makes statement

Watch this video of North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper making a public statement about the impact of the 4th Circuit's opinion today in the Virginia case upon North Carolina, another 4th Circuit state.

Very clear, direct, and concise.

h/t @chrisgeidner: "NC AG Cooper says it's time to stop defending state's marriage ban: 'There are really no arguments left to be made.'"

From AG Cooper's prepared remarks (again h/t @chrisgeidner):

In all these cases challenging state marriage laws, our office along with other attorneys general and state attorneys across the country have made about every legal argument imaginable. Since the US Supreme Court ruled in the Windsor case, all the federal courts have rejected these arguments each and every time. So it's time for the State of North Carolina to make making them.
