In a 5-2 ruling, the N.C. Supreme Court has affirmed the state Appeals Court’s opinion favoring a former Greensboro police chief in his legal battle with the city.

Former Chief David Wray had been suing the city for “substantial litigation expenses.” A trial court had ruled in favor of the city, but an Appeals Court panel voted 2-1 to reverse that ruling and accept Wray’s argument.

Sam Hieb has noted other developments in this case in previous “Locker Room” posts.
