Recently a judge in the Charlotte area tossed a lawsuit out filed against multiple Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools volunteers and employees, as well as the Charlotte Observer and a local Charlotte attorney. Here’s what the Charlotte Observer missed about the plaintiff.
First, the beginning of the Charlotte Observer article about this case, emphasis added:
A lawsuit filed by a political candidate against Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, several school employees, two volunteers, a Charlotte attorney as well as The Charlotte Observer has been thrown out of court.
Superior Court Judge Lisa Bell of Charlotte handed down her decisions last week, following a lengthy July 25 hearing in which Tigress McDaniel dismissed the judge as biased, said she was being denied “natural justice,” and belittled some of the defendants on hand, observers said.
Superior Court Judge Lisa Bell of Charlotte has dismissed a complaint by Tigress McDaniel against about a dozen parties. In April, McDaniel, an unsuccessful candidate for the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners this year, sued the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, several school employees and volunteers, a prominent Charlotte attorney as well as the Charlotte Observer. Bell handed down her orders dismissing the cases against all of the defendants after a July 25 hearing.
McDaniel ran unsuccessfully for at-large Mecklenburg County commissioner in the May Democratic primary. She’s now a candidate for Soil & Water Conservation District Supervisor.
