Widen I-77 group: N.C. Senate plan could threaten tolls complaint

Widen I-77, the group suing the N.C. Department of Transportation over the I-77 toll project, feels an N.C. Senate proposal threatens its lawsuit

The proposal would take away judges’ discretion in awarding attorney’s fees and force law firms to pay the state’s attorney’s fees

Widen I-77 doesn’t expect the legal battle with the N.C. DOT to be resolved by September, when the new proposal would take effect if it’s signed into law
