Wise Carter attorneys Charles Cowan, Doug Levanway, and Cory Radicioni prevailed in an appeal before the Mississippi Court of Appeals in a fiercely contested 5 to 4 decision handed down on July 30, 2019. Milam v. Kelly, 282 So.3d 682 (Miss. Ct. App. 2019)
Wise Carter attorneys represented homeowners who had been sued by their neighbor for allegedly causing their Northeast Jackson home to flood repeatedly over a series of years. Wise Carter obtained summary judgment in their clients’ favor before the Hinds County Chancery Court after the Chancery Court found that the plaintiff homeowner’s claims were barred by the applicable statute of limitations.
Five judges of the Mississippi Court of Appeals wrote a majority opinion affirming the entry of summary judgment in the Wise Carter’s clients’ favor. The Mississippi Supreme Court recently denied the plaintiff homeowner’s petition for writ of certiorari.
