The Supreme Court of North Carolina will hold its October session of court at the Historic 1767 Chowan County Courthouse in Edenton on October 3 and 4. The court will hear three cases on Monday and two cases on Tuesday.
Under state law, the Supreme Court can meet in only two other cities outside of Raleigh: Edenton and Morganton.
“We are delighted that Edenton is hosting the Supreme Court once again,” said Chief Justice Paul Newby. “Holding this special session of court outside of Raleigh makes it easier for North Carolinians across the state to better understand the rule of law and the Judicial Branch’s Constitutional obligation to ensure that justice is delivered without favor, denial, or delay.”
Due to limited seating, admission to these sessions of court is by ticket only. Tickets are free of charge and available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis via a “will call” system.
Participants must pre-register at Historic Edenton, 108 N. Broad Street, Edenton, NC 27932 or by calling (252) 482-2637. Participants will need to indicate which session(s) they wish to attend. Participant names and phone numbers will be collected. Courtroom attire is required.
