COA Opinions Today

The NC COA published opinions today, including 14 civil published opinions. More on these cases to come...

The Azar decision seems to be the first post-Dogwood opinion where the CoA found nonjurisdictional violations to be "substantial" or "gross" and taxed costs on an appellant as a result. Most other opinions since Dogwood just caution/admonish counsel in what seems to be a trend by most of the CoA judges to be overly cautious to sanction attorneys in any meaningful way for rules violations. Certainly, an exception to that pattern though would be Judge Stephen's dismissal of today's unpublished decision in Household Realty -- the dismissal was based, at least in part, on a 28(b)(6) violation (specifically, an overbroad assignment of error).
