Patterson Harkavy Prevails for Plaintiff in a Significant Constitutional Decision by the NC Supreme Court

In a unanimous decision, the North Carolina Supreme Court ruled that the plaintiff could pursue his constitutional claims against the local board of education in Craig v. New Hanover County Board of Education. Jusitce Hudson, writing for the Court, held that the plaintiff's constitutional claims could not be barred because the school board enjoyed immunity from other tort claims. Burton Craige helped to represent the plaintiff on appeal, and argued the case before the Supreme Court.
