RALEIGH, N.C. – Gov. Roy Cooper sued Republican legislative leaders again Friday over laws that he argues unconstitutionally erode his powers to appoint appeals court judges and members of board and commissions.

Extending the conflict between the GOP-dominated legislature and Cooper that began just before he took office Jan. 1, the new lawsuit says the challenged laws prevent Cooper from performing properly his gubernatorial duties.

Cooper already has sued over other laws approved just before he took office, with results mixed but mostly favoring him.
