YMW sponsored the North Carolina Judicial Candidates’ Forum by the Association of Defense Attorneys on September 28 in Greensboro, N.C. It featured judicial candidates running in statewide elections for seats on the North Carolina Supreme Court and the North Carolina Court of Appeals. The Judicial Candidates’ Forum provided members of the bar, the business community and the public an opportunity to learn about the candidates who wish to serve the state at the appellate court level. Each candidate had the opportunity to discuss his or her qualifications for the position and answered questions regarding areas of concern for businesses, civil defense attorneys and their clients.
“Judicial candidates often have very limited campaign budgets,” said Rod Pettey, firm partner. “The forum provided a great opportunity for all of the candidates to share how they can further benefit the state judicial system.”
