Civil Liability of the Local Government and Its Officials and Employees

“This article deals with two basic areas of liability: tort liability under North Carolina law and liability under federal law for violations of the Civil Rights Act of 1871. … These two kinds of claims are the most common ones brought against public servants and their employers. As covered in this article, the state and federal rules governing these claims determine whether a local government and its public servants may be required to pay damages to someone harmed by official action.”
