Nick Fountain Presents on Trial of Historic Property Cases

John N. (Nick) Fountain recently presented a lecture and panel discussion on Trial of Historic Property Cases to the Administrative Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association. The program reviewed unusual procedural issues and the relationship between Historic Property Commissions, Boards of Adjustment, the Superior Court as well as the tension between property rights and preservation of our heritage. The platform for discussion was the case of Cherry vs. Weisner et al, a case in which Mr. Fountain and other firm members represented the prevailing party who had built a new residence in an historic district which was threatened with demolition.

A partner at Young Moore, Nick has assisted clients in more than 80 of the 100 courthouses in North Carolina and before dozens of the numerous boards and commissions in Raleigh. He has been involved in more than 40 reported decisions in the North Carolina Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, the Business Court, U.S. District Court and the Fourth Circuit. In addition to having served on the Grievance, Authorized Practice, and Legislative Committees of the North Carolina State Bar, Nick has served as President of the Wake County and 10th district Bar, on the Board of Governors of the North Carolina Bar Association, and as president of the Raleigh Kiwanis Club.
