Coming up on the local news roundup...

Atrium Health continues to make headlines after nearly 100 doctors sued the company to be released from employment agreements and non-complete clauses. Atrium announced this week, following the lawsuit filing, that it would allow the doctors to operate independently.

In other Atrium news, the health company has announced a counter suit to the one filed by Southeast Anesthesiology Consultants last week. We'll provide an update.

City leaders are skeptical about whether a return to red light cameras in Charlotte is a good idea. At Monday’s City Council meeting, members said they need more data to make a decision on the matter.

The primary election is just over a month out, and several races are garnering attention, including the 12th Congressional District, where Alma Adams is facing much younger Democratic opponents. We’ll discuss the battle of generations happening in that race.

Chief Kerr Putney may be in favor of “wanding” all those who enter CMS schools to increase safety, and more potential Panthers bidders are in town this week- we’ll give you an update.

Those stories and much more with Mike Collins and our roundtable of reporters, on Charlotte Talks.
