APPELLATE BRIEFS FILED IN SELA CASE
Briefs have been filed at the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in the NOSWB’s appeal of the trial court’s favorable ruling to plaintiffs.
1) The Trial Court Judge, Nakisha Ervin-Knott, based her ruling on the Holzenthal decision as legal precedent.
Nowhere in the NOSWB Brief is the Holzenthal case even mentioned or discussed.
2) The NOSWB wants the Court to find the contractors at fault, but it didn’t put on any evidence of the Contractor’s negligence. The NOSWB has the burden of proof on this and has failed to meet their burden by not putting on any evidence.
3) Plaintiffs continue to obtain judgments against the NOSWB, and awards for attorneys fees and costs as the prevailing party. Most of these awards are not subject to federal credits, and continuing to incur them makes no economic sense.
