Owners of Bald Head ferry that went aground want claims heard by same judge

Friday, April 25th, 2014

By Wayne Faulkner

The owners of the Bald Head Island ferry that went aground near Southport in December have filed a motion in federal court that seeks to have any claims against them heard in one forum.

If the action, called a complaint, is OK’d by the court, all claims would be heard by the same U.S. District Court judge in Wilmington – rather than filed separately over a period of time – said Geoffrey Losee, partner in Rountree Losee. The Wilmington law firm represents owner Bald Head Island Transportation Inc. and manager Bald Head Island Limited LLC.

The complaint, which Losee described as a common course of action under maritime law, also seeks exoneration from or limitation of liability by the vessel’s owners.

DA: Sheriff ‘unprofessional’ in accusations toward challenger

Friday, April 25th, 2014

ONSLOW COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown is under fire after making what the district attorney called “unprofessional accusations” toward his opponent.

During a phone conversation, Brown accused opponent Hans Miller of being linked to recent bomb threats in the county. The sheriff said a suspect arrested for a bomb threat told him Miller was connected to them.

The district attorney investigated, but found no evidence to support that claim.

“I do not condone the actions or words of Sheriff Brown during his phone call to Hans Miller on April 11, 2014,” DA Ernie Lee said. “I find those actions and words to be unprofessional and to reflect unfavorably upon Sheriff Brown.”

Lee went onto say though he did not agree with the accusations, the sheriff’s actions were not illegal, because they were protected by the First Amendment.
