North Carolina Court of Appeals Upholds Judgment against NCDOT
It has been a long, uphill battle against the NCDOT for its failure to install a traffic signal at the intersection of Highway 49 where it crosses Palisades Parkway and Riverpoint Drive.
The NC Industrial Commission awarded the families of Hunter Holt and Cynthia and Mackie Price three million dollars in December 2014, five and half years after they lost their loved ones. The NCDOT appealed and yesterday the NC Court of Appeals upheld the Commission’s award. Will the NCDOT appeal to the NC Supreme Court? Probably. They have nothing to lose as the NCDOT is not required to pay interest on a judgment when it appeals.
