Randolph James (pictured) was hired six weeks before trial in Barbara Wortley’s suit against Law Enforcement Associates, Inc.
Wortley had a feeling the deck was stacked against her in Wake County. Former state Sen. Tony Rand was chairman of the board of LEA. He is the father of Ripley Rand, a former Wake County judge and now U.S. Attorney for the Middle District. Furthermore, Tony Rand is also Wake County Judge Shannon Joseph’s father-in-law.
James said that although Rand made several appearances during the trial, any feeling Wortley had that she wouldn’t get a fair shake were laid to rest by the conduct of proceedings before Superior Court Judge Carl Fox. “We received a very fair, even-handed trial,” James said.
