Abstract:
In the longest criminal civil-rights trial in U.S. history, nine Klan-Nazi defendants were acquitted on charges stemming from the 1979 anti-Klan rally in Greensboro. There are four contributing factors that led to the not-guilty verdicts including a conservative interpretation of the federal civil-rights statues, the defense casted the victims as revolutionaries, jury selection did not reflect a cross-section of the community, and defense and prosecution contrasted in experience and style.

Abstract:
According to North Carolinians Against Racist and Religious Violence, since 1982 there have been at least 25 acts of racial intimidation reported in Iredell County.

After being dismissed from Duke Hospital for allegedly refusing to commit perjury in a malpractice trail, Marie Sides is suing for wrongful termination. But first, she had to secure a precedent-setting ruling from the North Carolina Supreme Court for the right to sue on those grounds.
