Practice Areas

May 5, 2020

The North Carolina Supreme Court granted a petition for discretionary review filed by Robinson Bradshaw in a pro bono matter involving a landlord-tenant dispute. The matter will now move forward with a full briefing and oral argument before the Supreme Court.

Robinson Bradshaw's petition asked the Court to review a lower court decision allowing the firm's client to be evicted from her home in a Raleigh public housing community without notice of a specific reason for the eviction and without an opportunity to confront and cross-examine other tenants who submitted complaints to her landlord. The petition asked for review on the grounds that the lower court decision threatens the procedural rights of public housing tenants across the state and conflicts with precedent.

Robinson Bradshaw attorneys Erik R. Zimmerman and Ethan R. White represent the tenant in the case, in partnership with Legal Aid of North Carolina.
