Charles McGee was recently successful in defending a client through the appeals process. The client, an uninsured motorist insurance carrier, prevailed at the trial court level when summary judgement was granted in its favor. The plaintiff appealed, and on appeal Charles argued case and statutory law supported the trial court’s decision that the plaintiff’s uninsured motorist claims should be dismissed for failure to satisfy statute of limitations requirements. After the Court of Appeals ruled in the client’s favor and affirmed the trial court, the plaintiff sought further discretionary review by the Supreme Court of North Carolina. Charles filed a response on behalf of the client, and again asserted the trial court was correct in awarding summary judgement in the client’s favor and dismissing the claims against it. After reviewing the parties’ filings, the Supreme Court denied the plaintiff’s request for discretionary review and affirmed the favorable decisions of the courts below.
