Lawsuit Filed Against McCrory Campaign, Campaign Starts Civil Action

Pat McCrory's gubernatorial campaign and political committees behind a television commercial that McCrory wants off the air have filed competing legal actions in a North Carolina court.

The Democratic Governors Association and the group North Carolina Citizens for Progress have filed a complaint in Wake County court. The complaint filed Thursday asks a judge to rule that the ad's content is true and the groups have complied with the law.

The commercial that began running last week focuses on McCrory's involvement with a Charlotte-based business Tree.com. McCrory's campaign calls the ad false and says TV stations should stop running it.

A lawyer for McCrory's campaign late Thursday filed paperwork to start civil action against the Democratic governor's group and North Carolina Citizens for Progress. It has until mid-June to sue.
