Don’t forget to RSVP for next Tuesday’s N.C. Policy Watch Crucial Conversation, “Why courts matter (and why North Carolinians should be paying a lot more attention to them)” - featuring the Honorable James A. Wynn, Jr., Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit

If there’s one branch of modern government that’s, at once, more important and more neglected by caring and thoughtful Americans than the federal judiciary, it’s hard to say what that would be. Despite its enormous importance and influence in shaping our society, the judiciary – the cases before it, the decisions it renders, and the people who comprise it – receives far less attention than it (and they) deserve.

Here in North Carolina, a seat on the Federal District Court for the Eastern District has remained vacant for seven years with scarcely a ripple of public attention.

Why is this the case? More importantly, what are the prospects for changing this dynamic and how might we go about it?

Please join us as one of North Carolina’s most distinguished jurists shares his thoughts on these and other related questions.
