More on Siler

Samiha's doing her homework over at the Indy:
Before presenting his legal opinion (PDF) Monday night that the N.C. DOT didn't follow the proper procedure in abandoning a piece of land, Durham County Attorney Lowell Siler consulted five law experts on their opinions in the matter.

. . .

The input sent to Siler's office during the past two weeks was divided, and of the five lawyers and legal experts, only one was an apparently uninterested party: Charles Szypszak, a retired professor from the UNC School of Government, who provided a one-paragraph opinion stating he was "reluctant to conclude that the state's revocation was ineffective."

The others Siler consulted with included the State AG's office, an attorney representing some of the opponents to the rezoning application, and two others, including the ubiquitous Patrick Byker, who represent various members of the development team.

I'm not sure i agree with Samiha's description of the AG's office as an interested party, but that's a minor quibble. Read the whole piece.



  • I had no idea that "No backsies" was a valid legal argument.
