According to the preliminary numbers, Judges Rich Dietz, Bob Hunter, and Valerie Zachary will keep their seats on the North Carolina Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court of North Carolina will welcome Mike Morgan as a new associate justice, and the Court of Appeals will now include Phil Berger and Hunter Murphy as judges.

Congratulations to all of the judges returning to or joining our State’s appellate courts.  We also thank all of those jurists who have served our State and the bar so well over the years.
