Melrose, Seago and Lay attorney Mark R. Melrose won a new trial for our client in an opinion recently published by the North Carolina Court of Appeals. In the original trial Mr. Fisher had a substantial judgment awarded against him. Mr. Melrose proved that the trial court had erred in that the amount of the award of damages was not supported by the evidence and therefore the Court of Appeals vacated the judgment and remanded the case against Fisher for a new trial.
