Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013


WILMINGTON, N.C. (WWAY) — Palace officials say the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a baby boy this afternoon.

The infant is third in line to the British throne after Prince Charles and William.

Reports say Prince William was by his wife’s side the whole time at St. Mary’s Hospital in London.

Many of you here in the Port City were following the royal couple every step of the way.

He spends much of his time coaching the sport he loves, but Monday he took a little time to celebrate the “big news” back home.

“I was actually on Skype with my parents back home when my little sister screamed out the window, “She’s had the baby,” said Briggs.

Briggs is from a small town outside of Birmingham, England.

He says his family across the pond is ecstatic about the birth of the newest royal.

Judge tosses lawsuit over NC public records law

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – A judge has dismissed a lawsuit alleging that Carolinas HealthCare System broke the state public records law.

The Charlotte Observer reports (http://bit.ly/13y96GE) that the dismissal order signed Monday cited a segment of the N.C. public records law stating that settlement documents are public records “in any suit, administrative proceeding or arbitration instituted against any agency of North Carolina government.”

Charlotte attorney Gary Jackson accused the health care system of keeping secret the terms of a settlement. Carolinas HealthCare won a confidential settlement in a complaint it filed against the former Wachovia Bank in 2008.

Three year later, the system agreed to settle that case confidentially and refused to release a copy of the agreement.

Jackson said he will appeal the ruling to the N.C. Court of Appeals.
