RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Court cases have been delayed for the first round of protesters arrested in NAACP-led demonstrations at the North Carolina Legislature.

Seventeen protesters were scheduled to appear in Wake County District Court in Raleigh on Monday. Most of them showed up, including North Carolina chapter President William Barber.

NAACP legal adviser Irv Joyner asked that the cases be dismissed.

District Court Judge Dan Nagle postponed action on the cases until September.

The civil rights group plans to hold its latest rally against the conservative policies of the Republican majorities in the General Assembly late Monday afternoon.

About 450 protesters arrested in seven weeks of demonstrations face similar charges.
