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 Palisaides 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 thier 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.http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/local/article58012363.html
