Dulaney v. Inmar, Inc. Before Jan. 1, 2010, the defendant-employer gave the plaintiff-employee a copy of its “2010 Promotion Services Rebate and Fulfillment Services Sales and Renewal Incentive Plan.” According to the Plan, incentive payments were to be made approximately six weeks after the end of the quarter in which the qualifying sales were made; moreover, one had to be a Plan participant at the time of the payout in order to receive the incentive payment. Plaintiff resigned on July 22, 2010, prior to the Plan’s incentive payout date for the quarter ending June 30, 2010; therefore, the employer did not violate the Wage and Hour Act when it failed to make incentive payments to plaintiff for her second-quarter sales.

Petitioners are DOC inmates who have been sentenced to death by lethal injection.
Beaches West Developments, Ltd. v. North Carolina Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat, P.A. Defendants produced an affidavit from an expert in landscape architecture forecasting testimony that the stormwater retention pond for the parties’ office park is in compliance with all city regulations and, to the extent required, with the customary standards of a Class A office park. Plaintiff, on the other hand, produced nothing beyond its own admittedly lay opinion that the pond should have more attractive landscaping in order to conform to Class A office park standards - which it claimed were impossible to specifically identify. Plaintiffs failed to make out a prima facie case that defendants were in default of their duties to maintain the pond under the office park’s declaration.
Mathis v. Hoffman After her neighbors mistakenly built their fence on her property, defendant was not entitled to choose her remedy. It was within the trial court’s authority to enter an injunction allowing plaintiffs to move the fence to their own property at their expense.
