MELODY JOLLY (Wilmington) and LEE POOLE, JR. (Charlotte) obtained a dismissal of all claims against the manufacturer and distributor of cranes, which were allegedly defective. The plaintiff alleged violations of the Uniform Commercial Code as well as products liability claims. The defense filed a pre-Answer Motion to Dismiss arguing statute of limitations defenses and plaintiff’s failure to state any claim for relief. Based on the brief and oral arguments, the court granted the defense’s motion and dismissed the case with prejudice.
