NC Attorney General Roy Cooper receives award

Posted: Updated:

The National Association of Attorneys General presented Cooper with the 2013 Kelley-Wyman Award, the Association's highest honor last week in Boston.

The award is given each year to the Attorney General who has done the most to achieve the objectives of the association. The group tells 9 On Your Side that Cooper's work to fight predatory lending on both the state and national levels, tackle social media privacy and safety threats, and improve cooperation on multi-state cases and joint investigations between states and the federal government all led to his nomination.

"Roy has steadfastly championed the interests not only of North Carolinians, but also of Americans across the country," Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler said in presenting the award.  "His dedication, judgment, and hands-on approach to the office have made the attorneys general with whom he has worked, as well as NAAG as an association, better in numerous and important ways."
