Copy of Bill of Rights now officially NC's





A copy of the Bill of Rights stolen from the state Capitol during the Civil War now officially belongs to the people of North Carolina, state Attorney General Roy Cooper said today.

Superior Court Judge Henry W. Hight Jr. issued an order today that ended all remaining claims to the document. Hight declared that North Carolina owns its original copy of the Bill of Rights, Cooper's office said in a news release.

The judgment ended a lengthy legal battle by the state for ownership of the historic document.
