If you practice in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, we have some news for you. According to an email sent from the court late last month, the Bryson City division is no more:
Please be advised that the Bryson City Division and case number will be dissolved effective 01/01/2015.
All new cases filed that fall within the counties that were before covered by the BC division: Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Jackson, Macon and Swain now are incorporated into the Asheville Division and will be assigned a “1” at the beginning of the case number. (Example: 1:15-cv-00001)
Update your files accordingly.
