Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I am suing the State of North Carolina for wrongful discharge and I am charging that they used a tactic of constructive discharge. They suspended me without pay for over six months while they went through all the necessary proceedings. I worked as a teacher in a county detention center. The headquarters for the department is in Raleigh, NC in Wake County. Could it be that I filed my complaint in the wrong court. If my complaint was dismissed in that court can I file my complaint with out appealing in the Wake County Court. Who has personal jurisdiction? Seems to me that the questions I have should be addressed in the dismissal order. I am just like you trying to figure out what the rules mean. Hope you will help me because nobody else will.
