Dependable Erection

Ark of the Covenant located at last!

Samiha at the Indy reports that W. Richard Moore at the NC Attorney General's office has given Boy Detective Encyclopedia Brown County Attorney Lowell Siler a letter outlining the state's authority to reject Southern Durham Development's gift of an easement along NC 751.

The easement would have invalidated a protest petition filed against a rezoning request by moving the boundary of the land more than 100 feet from a number of signatories on the petition. By rejecting the easement, the state seeks to step away from Durham's internal processes and allow the case to be decided by current law. I imagine that Siler will have a busy weekend looking for holes in the State's document.

Keystone Kops Law Firm K&L Gates attorney Patrick Byker, representing SDD has threatened to sue the state if they give the land back. That ought to be amusing.

I swear, you can't buy entertainment like this at any price.

  • The legal aspects are now worked out.

    I expect a press release from the County at 9:01 am on Monday declaring the petition valid. Of course, we're not going to hear our opinion until after 7:00pm Monday.

    I can't wait to see what loophole K&L-- err... Siler has found

  • If someone with deep pockets would propose mixed use high density redevelopment at the old WalMart site on Roxboro and Oxford Highway, i would be beating people over the head to support that.

    Too expensive, though, and not enough profit.

    I wonder if you can see the bald eagles from 751 South?

  • You think the state might finally think about legislation protecting NC gov't and citizens from SLAPP lawsuits, now that K&L Gates and SDD are threatening them with one??

  • I don't understand what's so hard about this.
    Question - Couldn't Medlin say whatever he wants regardless of Siler's opinion?

  • Oh, that would be fun to watch, wouldn't it?
