Cleveland Co. wrongful death suit could go to trial


CLEVELAND COUNTY - A woman’s lawsuit against Cleveland County could go to trial before the end of the year.

Travis Kidd, 24, was an employee at the landfill when a trash compactor hit and killed him in 2010.

Since then his family has been pushing for legal action, seeking wrongful death damages and a full explanation.

The North Carolina Supreme Court overturned a lower court’s decision to throw out the case.
