Carolina Shores commissioner to pursue defamation lawsuit

Posted by Debra Worley - email

CAROLINA SHORES, NC (WECT) - Carolina Shores Town Commissioner Gere Dale plans to take legal action against the person responsible for a public cartoon, according to published reports.

Dale doesn't think it's a laughing matter when officials are targeted by caricatures that make fun of him and fellow commissioners.

Dale will ask the town attorney to initiate a defamation lawsuit against the artist, who has been determined but not named at this time.
