State v. Taylor, 212 N.C. App. 238 (Jun. 7, 2011)

The court suggested in dicta that on a motion for appropriate relief (as on appellate review) a defendant may be deemed to have waived errors in jury instructions by failing to raise the issue at trial. However, the court did not decide the issue since it concluded that even when considered on the merits, the defendant’s alleged instructional error lacked merit.
