On March 22, 2024 the Supreme Court in Terry v. Pub. Serv. Co. of N.C., (28A23 - Published) upheld the trial court’s granting of Summary Judgment for the Defendant Landlord in a premises liability case.

The issue was whether there is a duty to inspect when the tenant never complains of any issues to the landlord.

The court agreed there was no duty.

Thanks to Harris, Creech, Ward & Blackerby, P.A., by A. Ruthie Sheets; and Jay C. Salsman and the NCADA for the amicus brief.
