McCrory signs “star chamber” judicial discipline bill

 Pat McCrory 4Among the controversial bills that the Governor attempted (probably successfully) to approve under the news media radar this afternoon was the hugely controversial proposal [1] detailed here [2] by NC Policy Watch reporter Sharon McCloskey last month to establish a secret and unaccountable “star chamber” system for disciplining wayward state judges.

The bill was opposed by both the N.C. Bar Association [3] and the N.C. Advocates for Justice [4]— which represents the state’s trial lawyers.

All in all, this afternoon appears to be shaping up as the icing on the cake [5] of what is, without a doubt, one of the most disastrous years in public policy in state history.

Have a great weekend.
