Another North Carolina equitable distribution case appeal was ruled to be interlocutory by the North Carolina Court of Appeals in Williamson vs. Williamson. Here the North Carolina District Court Judge announced its decision from the bench – meaning the Judge stated the ruling in open Court. When the wife appealed the equitable distribution ruling, the decision had not been reduced to a written Order and the issue of alimony was still pending before the Court.
The North Carolina Court of Appeals ruled just as it did in Bodie vs. Bodie, which is to say that the appeal was interlocutory. There was no substantial right at issue, and therefore the ruling was not immediately appealable, because appeals that challenge only the financial repercussions of a separation or divorce do not affect a substantial right.
