Statute of Repose Bill passes NC Legislature
The statute of repose acts as a time limit for people injured by defective products to file a claim in court. North Carolina had a 6-year statute of repose, which unfairly limited the rights of people injured by a product bought more than 6 years ago.
Senate Bill 882 has passed the state House and Senate and is on the way to the governor for her signature. The bill doubles the statute of repose to 12 years. This is a big victory for consumers in North Carolina. Burton Craige was instrumental in the passage of this legislation.
