NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A Special Superior Court Judge signed off on a motion for a protective order issued by New Hanover County against former commissioner Brian Berger.

This motion comes on the heels of a recent appeal of the amotion process that removed Berger from the board of commissioners earlier this year. No ruling was made during the appeal, instead, both sides were given 30 days to add evidence or rebuttals to present to the judge.

According to official documents, the board of commissioners asked for the motion Friday to stop Berger's "pursuit of discovery" and add costs and fees from this case against him.

Special Superior Court Judge James L. Gale granted the request for a protective order with some limitations.

The court is denying the request for costs or fees in connection with the motion, but says Berger cannot submit any supplemental briefs to the judge in the appeals case outside of the given 30-day window.
