Young v. Woodall: Verdict by NC Judges John & Johnson covered up false police report
Judges John and Johnson covered up false police report; and should have deferred to federal law instead of state law.
Here’s the revealing paragraph of information:
The Constitution takes precedence over state law and false police reports are illegal. But they ruled:
Judges John and Johnson obstructed justice with their decision below to use NC case law to cover up a false police report. The US Constitution does not offer absolute immunity for a municipality, and Judges John and Johnson ruled against the US Constitution in this case :
“Governmental immunity protects a municipality, Taylor v. Ashburn, 112 N.C. App. 604, 607, 436 S.E.2d 276, 278 (1993)(citations omitted), cert. denied, 336 N.C. 77, 445 S.E.2d 46 (1994), and its officers or employees sued in their official capacity from suit for torts committed while the officers or employees are performing a governmental function. Id. at 607, 436 S.E.2d at 279. It is well established that law enforcement is a governmental function. Hare v. Butler, 99 N.C. App. 693, 698, 394 S.E.2d 231, 235, disc. review denied, 327 N.C. 634, 399 S.E.2d 121 (1990).”
