Democrat Announces Bid for NC Supreme Court in Expedited Election

RALEIGH – With the impending retirement of N.C. Supreme Curt Chief Justice Mark Martin, and Senior Associate Justice Paul Newby announcing his intention to run for the Chief Justice spot, the high court is going to see a lot of movement. Now, joining N.C. Court of Appeals (CoA) Judge Phil Berger Jr., Democrat CoA Judge Lucy Inman has announced her intention to run for the Supreme Court in 2020.

From the News & Observer:

“Judges protect everyone’s rights by applying the law consistently and respecting our state and federal constitutions,” Inman said in a press release. “Judges don’t make the law. We are duty bound to follow it.”

Unlike in the federal court system, judges in North Carolina are elected. Earlier this month, Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark Martin announced he will retire in February to become the dean of a law school in Virginia. That triggered a new election in 2020 for the chief justice seat, which previously wasn’t supposed to open up until 2022.”

While it would be nice to have confidence that judicial officials, regardless of party affiliation, consistently respected the constitution and objectively interpreted laws, so often it is the case that left-leaning judges exceed the constitutional bounds of the judiciary to the benefit of Democrats and the detriment of constitutional requirements.

Already a Democratic majority, the N.C. Supreme Court now features a bona fide social justice warrior on its bench, and the 2020 election risks Democrats getting a near complete choke hold on the court.
