Neighbor sues Goodnight over property rights

Attorney Carl Younger of the Weatherspoon & Voltz law firm in Raleigh represented the Dunn family of White Oak Road when it sued neighbor James A. Goodnight, son of billionaire SAS founder Jim Goodnight, in June 2017.

A next-door neighbor to a home that James A. Goodnight, son of SAS founder Jim Goodnight, is reconstructing on White Oak Road in Raleigh has filed a lawsuit against the billionaire’s son claiming property damage and trespassing as part of a case that’s pitted the new neighbors against each other.

The family is alleging that Goodnight, a Raleigh real estate investor, and his construction contractors have trespassed on a property that’s been in their family since the 1980s, cut and removed several trees and shrubs without their permission and illegally claimed adverse possession of the land.
