The link below discusses the status of the Map Act cases in North Carolina as of January 20, 2017. The Map Act and its cases, namely Kirby v North Carolina Department of Transporation, ruled that the NCDOT took property owners' fundamental property rights when the NCDOT filed the Map Act Corridors on the register of deeds in the respective counties. These counties include Forsyth, Wake, Guilford, Cleveland, and Cumberland, to name a few. This claim is called inverse condemnation.
