NC Superior Court Judge District 21D Seat 1

The NC Superior Court is the trial court of general jurisdiction in North Carolina. It hears all felony cases and certain misdemeanor cases. In civil matters, superior courts hear civil disputes involving amounts over $25,000. Judges are elected for 8 year terms. Legislation in 2017 changed these elections to partisan elections with no primary. The Superior Courts are divided into 8 divisions and further into 50 districts. There are 97 regular Superior Court judges under current state law, in addition to "special judges" who are appointed by the Governor, not elected. Judges rotate from district to district within their division every six months in order to avoid the danger of corruption or favoritism.
