Chief Justice Paul Newby continued his 100-county courthouse tour with a stop today in Randolph County. Chief Justice Newby was born in Randolph County and is the first Randolph County native to serve as chief justice.
"It was a special pleasure to be able to visit the judges, clerks, and other court staff at the courthouse in my home county today," said Chief Justice Newby."
At the courthouse, Newby greeted judges and courthouse staff to thank them for their hard work and dedication in keeping our courts open and accessible to North Carolinians. Judges and courthouse staff are essential in fulfilling the Judicial Branch's Constitutional "open courts" mandate to provide equal justice to all in a timely manner.
The tour began in May 2021, and when completed, Newby will be the first chief justice to visit all of North Carolina's courthouses from Murphy to Manteo.
