Municipal – Appeals – Housing Board – Judicial Review

Municipal – Appeals – Housing Board – Judicial Review

On 31 October 2019, the respondent-city’s housing appeals board upheld a notice of violation due to overgrowth and debris on petitioner’s property. Petitioner was notified that he had 15 days to appeal, yet he did not file notice of appeal until 21 November 2019. Even if the city failed to provide petitioner with the administrative record, the superior court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to review the matter, especially since petitioner did not file a petition for judicial review until 15 January 2021 – more than a year later.

We affirm the superior court’s order granting respondent’s motion to dismiss.

Rock v. City of Durham (Lawyers Weekly No. 012-544-22, 14 pp.) (Jeffery Carpenter, J.) Appealed from Durham County Superior Court (Michael O’Foghludha, J.) Martin Rock, pro so; Sofia Hernandez and Kimberly Rehberg for respondent. 2022-NCCOA-869
