Seeking Justice in Chapel Hill
Chapel Hill, North Carolina, is home to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and its amazing academic and athletic programs, especially basketball. Chapel Hill has always been a second home to Gene Riddle since he attended school there from 1977 to 1981. Both of his daughters are students there.
The town of more than 50,000 people is located in Orange County, just west of Durham and Raleigh, and is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the United States. Chapel Hill was ranked as one of the 50 Best Places to Live by Money Magazine in 2018, and Livability.com included the town in its Top 100 Best Places to Live in the same year.
Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh together form the Research Triangle, a geographical area known for advanced science, technology, and health care. More than 2 million people call the Triangle area home, and Chapel Hill and the surrounding communities are crisscrossed by some of the busiest roadways in North Carolina. Interstate 40 and Highway 501 can be particularly treacherous, and car, truck, motorcycle, and pedestrian accidents are common.
