RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A Wake County judge is giving more thought before deciding whether to block a new law that gives a trade group lone authority to train bail bondsmen in North Carolina. Superior Court Judge Donald Stephens heard arguments Monday involving a lawsuit filed by a firm competing with the North Carolina Bail Agents Association for training and continuing education needed for bondsmen to remain licensed. The company behind the North Carolina Bail Academy wants Stephens to issue a preliminary injunction delaying a law effective Oct. 1 that says only the association can provide training. A ruling isn't expected until late next week. The company said the law is unconstitutional, but attorneys for the state and the association argue the company fails to explain how.
