Fayetteville Asks Supreme Court To Lift Annexation Stay

Posted July 26, 2004 5:30 a.m. EDT

— Fayetteville leaders have asked the state Supreme Court to reconsider its annexation ruling.

Earlier this month, the city annexed 42,000 people from Cumberland County.

Just a few days later, the court stopped annexation and ordered the Court of Appeals to take another look at the case.

The paperwork filed late Monday afternoon with the Supreme Court asks that the stay be lifted.
