Judge Jerry Jolly took District Attorney Jon David all the way to the state Supreme Court over the DA's new traffic court program, but the judge would not stop for our camera when we tried to ask about the high court ruling against him.
The battle between Brunswick County District Attorney Jon David and District Court Judge Jerry Jolly finally had its day in the state Supreme Court. WWAY was the only Wilmington TV station in the courtroom in Raleigh as justices heard arguments from both sides today about a dispute over traffic court.
Brunswick County District Attorney Jon David says he's ready to move forward with a traffic court program after the North Carolina Supreme Court decided in his favor earlier this month.
Since Jon David has no authority to petition for a writ in the name of the State of North Carolina, the Petition should be summarily dismissed. In the alternative, the Petition for a writ of mandamus should be denied, since Petitioner, Jon David, has no clear right to an administrative traffic court or administrative traffic court days.
The North Carolina State Court of Appeals issued this decision yesterday regarding District Attorney Jon David's appeal of Judge Jerry Jolly's suspension of traffic court in Brunswick County:
Documents included with DA Jon David's appeal of Judge Jerry Jolly's injuction against traffic court and the StreetSmart program show Judge Ola Lewis was also involved, to the point of calling a chief deputy off of a murder investigation to serve David the order papers.
The North Carolina Court of Appeals has denied Jon David's request to overturn a judge's order temporarily.
A hands-on driving program at the center of a controversy in Brunswick County could get the green light again.
The Brunswick County Bar Association came together today to discuss District Attorney Jon David and the controversial StreetSafe program he would like to use.
When we tried attending the meeting, we were escorted out by a sheriff's deputy and told it was "private meeting." When we followed up, we were told that Brunswick County Judge Ola Lewis had requested security for the meeting to keep anyone from going in.
It sounds like something out of a crime novel. A Brunswick County judge is accusing the District Attorney of running a scheme. According to Chief District Court Judge Jerry Jolly, Brunswick County District Attorney Jon David is initiating a scheme that would help profit one of his 2010 campaign contributors.
