RALEIGH, N.C. (AP/WNCN) — The North Carolina attorney general’s office is asking a federal court not to restore the state’s 20-week abortion ban after the judge suggested his previous injunction “may now be contrary to law.”

The attorney general’s office argued in a brief filed late Monday that reinstating restrictions in the aftermath of the June U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade would create “significant risk of public confusion” about the availability and legality of abortion services in North Carolina.

Staff attorneys in Stein’s office filed the brief without the attorney general’s involvement.
