On Thursday, the Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority submitted a petition for rehearing to the state’s highest court in Raleigh. Last month, the Supreme Court decided not to consider an appeal by the Water Authority of local and appellate court rulings in an inverse condemnation case. Earlier in 2012, the state’s high court initially indicated it would hear the appeal, but reversed course in December.
High Point’s share of damages is estimated to be $1 million. As has been reported before— but just in case you haven’t heard— one of the five dam owners who sued PTRWA is Chip Hagan, husband of Sen. Kay Hagan.
