Nathaniel “Nat” C. Smith’s favorable court ruling


Attorney Nathaniel “Nat” C. Smith made a significant impact on legal history this year in Carsanaro v. Colvin, where the courts ruled that a person could be held liable for the indirect transmission of a sexual disease.  The court held that the defendant who knows, or has reason to know, that he or she has an STD has a duty to warn the spouse of sexual partners, if the spouse is known or should have been known to the infected person.  The court ruling was featured on the front page of North Carolina Lawyers Weekly.
