RYAN BOLICK (Charlotte) successfully appealed a denial of a Motion for Summary Judgment on behalf of a teacher based upon the doctrine of sovereign immunity.  The trial court denied the defendant Teacher’s Motion for Summary Judgment holding that she had been sued in her individual capacity.  On appeal, the Court of Appeals reversed this finding and held that sovereign immunity applied to the teacher as she was not sued in her individual capacity.

The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon a lawyer's or law firm's past results.
