On the day of the scheduled meeting, Berger had to go out of town unexpectedly, he said, for reasons "tied to getting to the root of my complicated neuropsychological matter."

Berger was removed from the board four days later following an amotion hearing. The board voted 3-2 to remove him, with Berger and Commissioner Jonathan Barfield dissenting. It was the first time an amotion had been successfully used to remove a North Carolina elected official in nearly a century.
