The organisation says a state law designed to give Google tax exemptions, as well as a $4.8 million state Job Development Investment Grant given to the Web giant, violate various provisions of the state Constitution.
The same group sued to block more than $200 million in incentives to lure Dell to Winston-Salem, but the case was dismissed and the ruling has been appealed.
