Civil Practice – Appeals – Entry of Judgment — GroundsBlueridge General, Inc. v. Currituck County By letter of May 14, 2010, the trial judge informed the parties that he intended to grant plaintiff’s motion for relief from his Sept. 1, 2009 order dismissing plaintiff’s complaint. This letter did not constitute even the rendition of judgment, much less an entry of judgment.
