ABSTRACT
The article features state constitutional rights that have no federal counterparts, positive constitutional rights, and the interpretation issued by state courts. Positive constitutional rights are defined as essentially private entitlements to protection by the state, suggesting that the government has a form of affirmative obligation to provide something to the people. An example of positive constitutional rights is the duty to care for orphans by the North Carolina General Assembly.
