Civil Practice – Appeals – Insufficient Arguments

Civil Practice – Appeals – Insufficient Arguments

Eaton v. Campbell (Lawyers Weekly No. 12-07-0527, 4 pp.) (John C. Martin, Ch.J.) Appealed from Franklin County Superior Court. (Ronald L. Stephens, J.) N.C. App. Full-text opinion.

Holding: Although defendants “question[] the law that should have been applied to decide the issues presented herein,” defendants fail to identify what, if any, relevant law was the source of the purported “confusion and misinterpretation in the [trial court’s] rulings,” and which, if any, law should have been applied in its stead. Because defendants’ limited and unsupported arguments give us no reason to disturb the trial court’s judgment in which its conclusions of law are supported by its findings of fact which are, in turn, supported by the record  evidence, we affirm.
