Quote from "outer banks voice"
John E. Nobles, Jr,. a Superior Court judge in Carteret County, ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, who are represented by his former law partner, Stevenson Weeks of Wheatly, Wheatly, Nobles and Weeks in Beaufort, scheduling a full hearing for Oct. 6 at 10 a.m. If another injunction or permanent restraining order is issued at that time, the commercial gill net and recreational seasons on flounder will not close. If Nobles rules against the plaintiffs, flounder fishing will close Oct. 16 and remain closed through Dec. 31.
