Raleigh, NC — Judicial Review Judge, Paul C. Ridgeway, Wake County General Court Of Justice, Superior Court Division, has upheld a lower court ruling that Public Officials / Agencies are “private entities” and immune from liability. Judge Ridgeway has upheld the earlier (1.17.11) ruling of lower court Judge J. Randall May in Class v. NORTH CAROLINA, Case No. 10 DOT 7047 (now known as 11 CVS 1559 in Judge Ridgeway’s ruling).

The September 15, 2011 ruling creates a conflict in the public’s perception of basic government legitimacy because Judge Howard E. Manning, Jr (who recused himself in August 2011) declared in Mr. Class’ 4.21.11 hearing that “the Defendants were NOT ‘private entities’ or ‘private contractors’.” !

Are the judges confused ? Are the “government” agencies and officials NOT what they’re portraying to their constituents ? Are they immune because they’re “private” ? Do we actually have government “agencies” and elect “Public” Officials OR do we deal with “Private Entities” ? Is the public being frauded ? So many questions ! So many conflicts !
