We wanted to give you a quick update on the NARSOL v. Stein case that affects all North Carolinians on the sex offender registry. Civil lawsuits navigating through the federal courts take time. There are many motions by both sides, which may prolong the case from moving forward.
However, the case is still active, and NARSOL, as well as NCRSOL, continue to exercise our right to fight on your behalf. On March 19, 2020, the state attorneys asked for an Extension of Time to Complete Discovery Motion and Amend Scheduling Order. Such motions are a standard procedure used to ensure both sides meet all its criteria ensuring a fair hearing of the evidence.
Despite all the technicalities of law, this case has reached a judge for his decision. In light of the Covid-19 virus, that decision could be significantly delayed until standard court operations resume. Therefore, once NCRSOL has been informed, we will keep our readers informed.
Please do your part to support NCRSOL and NARSOL. Court litigation does not come cheap. The cases we push forward have a more exceptional impact on the registry community not only in North Carolina but potentially all over our nation. NCRSOL utilizes funding only when credible attorneys have advised us that we have a compelling avenue at winning the case.
Our mission is to end the registry. Won’t you support us to make that dream a reality?
