I have some nsf checks from 2009-10 can I take them to civil court still and also add interest of 1.5 %

Yes, the statute of limitations for a civil action on a bad check is 5 years from the date on which the check was payable. Thus, you can still sue on these checks.

what about 1.5 interest

Not necessarily. The law in North Carolina provides that you may recover the lesser of $500 or 3x check amount, but not less than $100, on each check which is a bad check, but only after you send a 30 day demand for payment of the check prior to filing the lawsuit.
