LEXINGTON, NC (AP) — A judge in Davidson County is listening to a request to dismiss a lawsuit against Gov. Pat McCrory and another North Carolina official by an Internet sweepstakes business.

International Internet Technologies contends it is using software in its games that comply with state law.

The North Carolina Supreme Court ruled in December that state law bans sweepstakes machines.

But IIT and the operator of the Hickory Tree Business Center in Midway sued last month saying the machines at the business comply with state law.

Attorneys representing sweepstakes stakeholders and law enforcement agencies from across the state filled a Davidson County courtroom Monday. Superior Court Judge Robert F. Johnson heard arguments on a preliminary injunction only involving McCrory and Davidson County Sheriff David Grice.
