UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
D. LANE BAUCOM, JR.,
DoALL COMPANY, an Illinois
THIS MATTER is before the Court on its own motion following a remand to this Court.
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated and remanded the action to this Court after finding
that the jury failed to follow the Court’s instructions regarding damages. The jury awarded
Plaintiff $258,444.01 in damages. The Fourth Circuit found that this damages award should be
reduced by $5,200 to reflect that Plaintiff had earned that amount in alternate employment. The
Fourth Circuit gave Plaintiff the option of accepting the reduced damages award or being granted
a new trial.
Plaintiff has since filed a Notice of Acceptance of Remittitur, stating that he accepts the
remittitur ordered by the appellate court such that the damages awarded by the jury will be
reduced by the sum of $5,200, as if the jury had awarded damages in the amount of $253,244.01
for the judgment originally entered upon the jury’s verdict.
Given that the judgment is being amended, Plaintiff shall, within 20 days of this Order,
submit a revised proposed judgment amount, reflecting any adjustments in interest to be paid in

light of the new damages award. Defendant shall have 10 days to file a response to the proposed
amended judgment amount.1
Signed: February 17, 2021
The Court notes, however, that the Court has already ruled in favor of Plaintiff as to correct
percentages to be applied to interest, as well as the proper costs, and the parties may not revisit
