Gov. Roy Cooper has asked a three-judge panel to issue an order to keep Secretary Larry Hall from having to comply with the subpoena issued to him by the legislature yesterday.
“It is absurd that Roy Cooper continues to make the case that his cabinet secretaries – who have taken their oaths of office, go by the title of ‘secretary,’ collect six-figure paychecks and have hired their own deputies – are somehow not nominated,” said Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham.) “The legislature would never tell a witness not to appear to testify in court, so we hope the court would not tell a witness not to testify when subpoenaed by the legislature.”
