Bill Cannon and Mike McConnell successfully defended a favorable decision entered by the North Carolina Court of Appeals after the North Carolina Supreme Court decided to review the decision of the Court of Appeals. In Glens of Ironduff Property Owners Association, Inc. v. Daly, a subdivision property owners association sued the developer for damage to a subdivision road. The trial court ruled in favor of our client, the developer, and the association appealed the decision to the North Carolina Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals upheld the decision of the trial court and ruled in favor of the developer.
The North Carolina Supreme Court granted the association’s Petition for Discretionary Review and ordered briefs to be submitted as well as counsel to appear before the Supreme Court for oral argument. The North Carolina Advocates for Justice filed a friend of the court brief supporting the association’s brief. Bill Cannon and Mike McConnell filed a brief asking the Court to affirm the decision of the Court of Appeals in our client’s favor.
Bill Cannon argued on behalf of the developer before the Supreme Court on January 6, 2014. The Supreme Court issued an order on January 24, 2014 finding that the discretionary review had been improvidently allowed. This resulted in the win in the Court of Appeals being sustained as the final decision in the case.
