Price v. Moore, No. 07CVS746 (N.C. Super. Ct., Rockingham County filed April 20, 2007).
Status: Withdrawn by plaintiff

During the 2006 election, there was a police report that Rockingham County, N.C. school board candidate Ron Price had been seen removing campaign signs for Congressman Brad Miller, a Democrat. Price, who won his own election, was not charged. But former school board candidate Richard Moore, who publishes his own newspaper (The Neely Chronicle), maintains the “Rockingham Tattler” website (, and hosts a television show on local politics, allegedly claimed in each of these venues that Price was a “thief” and a “crook.” Price filed suit against Moore and his wife, seeking a restraining order and $140,000 in damages. He withdrew the suit in January 2008.
