State v. McNeil, ___ N.C. App. ___, 822 S.E.2d 317 (Nov. 20, 2018)

Notwithstanding the fact that the court was unable to determine whether the trial court had jurisdiction when it entered judgment in this DWI case, the court held—over a dissent--that it would exercise its discretion to treat the defendant’s appeal as a petition for certiorari in order to reach the merits of her argument.
