RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina’s highest court has temporarily blocked a judge’s ruling that allowed dozens of North Carolina’s bowling alleys to reopen by overturning a portion of Gov. Roy Cooper’s COVID-19 executive order.
On Tuesday, the state Supreme Court granted the request of state attorneys for Cooper, who says a preliminary injunction issued last week by a trial judge would make it harder to bring the virus under control.
The decision puts a temporary delay upon Judge James Gale’s order, meaning the bowling alleys must shut down again for now.
The justices also agreed to review the content of Gale’s decision.
