2 NC judges taking up seats on new benches

Posted: Updated:

Two special Superior Court judges appointed five years ago by Gov. Mike Easley on his last full day in office are being replaced by the choices of Gov. Pat McCrory.

McCrory's office says District Court Judge Marty McGee of Concord and longtime Administrative Law Judge Beecher Gray of Durham will be sworn in to their new posts Friday.

There are 15 such special trial court judges across the state. They hold court often for complex cases or to fill in for resident judges. They serve five-year terms and aren't subject to elections. Historically, outgoing governors sometimes appoint people with political ties or staff members.

McCrory's office says McGee and Gray succeed special Judges Shannon Joseph and William Pittman, whose terms ended Thursday.
