In a series of disastrous decisions last Friday, the liberal majority on the North Carolina Supreme Court made it easier for killers
and child predators
to avoid consequences of their crimes and declared open season on North Carolina businesses.
In their decision Chambers v. Moses H Cone Memorial Hospital, the radical leftwing majority, on the North Carolina Supreme Court, reversed long standing precedent and allowed class-action lawsuits to continue after the named plaintiffs dropped their claims rendering the case moot. This lawsuit arose from the plaintiff's failure to pay his medical bills, so he sued the hospital, claiming that it was unfair that the hospital charged him for the services the hospital provided. As the litigation continued, the sole plaintiff pulled himself off of the lawsuit. Usually, once the named plaintiffs all drop from a suit, the lawsuit is considered moot and dismissed. However, the liberal justices ignored settled law and held that the case could continue without any named plaintiffs opening up small businesses to scores of new frivolous lawsuits by predatory trial lawyers.
"The radical, liberal majority on the North Carolina Supreme Court has officially declared war on small businesses across the state,"
said NCGOP Press Secretary Tim Wigginton. "Just when North Carolina small businesses are starting to recover from COVID lockdowns and the riots. The liberal Justices on the North Carolina Supreme Court have opened the floodgates to frivolous class action lawsuits that will cost these struggling small businesses hundreds of millions of dollars in legal fees and thousands of sorely needed jobs for North Carolina workers."
