WILMINGTON, NC (StarNewsOnline.com) — An official timeline has been set for the rest of former New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger's appeal.
Berger was removed from the county board May 20 following an amotion hearing and the ousted commissioner filed an appeal of the decision with the New Hanover County Superior Court in mid-June. The case was later assigned to Special Superior Court Judge James Gale.
Attorneys representing Berger and the board of commissioners met at the NC Business Court in Greensboro last week for an appeal hearing before Gale. Gale did not make any decisions at that time and instead requested more information on the process of the original amotion hearing.
