Court allows trial in NFL player’s suit against builders (access required)

By Paul Tharp CHARLOTTE —In NFL terms Brandon Short’s lawsuit against the builders of his house fell behind in the first half, but late in the game, it is making a comeback. Short, a former Carolina Panthers linebacker, will have his case go to trial after the North Carolina Court of Appeals reversed a trial court’s summary judgment that favored several defendants. In 2005, Short contracted with Kingsland Builders to have a house built in Myers Park in Charlotte. When Short decided to sell the house in 2007 after being traded by the Panthers to the New York Giants, an inspector working for Short’s buyer discovered significant construction defects.
