So this happened (N.C. Court of Appeals website issue)
I got the standard email:
This message notifies you that the N.C. Court of Appeals has filed new opinions on 3 January 2017.
Please click here to view the new opinions on the N.C. Court System website (http://appellate.nccourts.
N.C. Court System – Appellate Division
But the website doesn’t have a 2017 link yet!
I’m hopeful they’ll resolve this soon.
