Most election years, the candidates for open seats on the Supreme Court of North Carolina and Court of Appeals participate in a lively forum at the Bar Association’s annual meeting.  It didn’t happen this year, in part because the filing period did not close until after the annual meeting.

Fear not, though.  The Wake Women Attorneys have managed to get nearly all of the candidates together for a discussion next week in Raleigh.  On August 16, the WWA (not the WWE) will host a “Judicial Candidate Forum” at Sitti, the lovely Lebanese restaurant downtown.  Here’s the flier.

Ok, that was the good news.  The bad news is that the event is extremely sold out.

The SML appellate team is sponsoring the event, so I’ll be there.  I’ll let y’all know if there’s any breaking news from the forum, like how good the hummus is.
