Sept. 2, 2016

Robinson Bradshaw attorneys John R. Wester, Thomas P. Holderness and Erik R. Zimmerman recently secured a victory in the North Carolina Supreme Court on behalf of Legal Aid of North Carolina. In Eastern Carolina Regional Housing Authority v. Lofton, the trio of attorneys successfully argued that the housing authority was wrong to evict the defendant from her home based on the conduct of a guest.

“If there were ever a worthy tenant, this is a worthy tenant,” Wester said in a North Carolina Lawyers Weekly article covering the case.

Wester, Holderness and Zimmerman served pro bono publico and joined as counsel to Legal Aid when the case reached the Supreme Court.
