Lawsuit here. Bottom line is property owner wouldn’t take lowball offer, so Kville threatens to take the land for Novant Health’s N.C. 66 connector. Construction begins in two weeks.

Also interesting is how the Joyce Development Corp.’s matriarch –herself a doctor —- was asked out to lunch supposedly on a social call and found herself in the company of four representatives of Novant, who —according to the suit —“pressured her to ‘gift’ the land.”
