Easley Appoints New Superior Court Judge

Former Center for Duke's football team and current Guilford County DA Stuart Albright has been named to replace his father as a superior court judge in Guilford County.

From WWAY 3:

North Carolina's governor finished out the old year by handing out some new jobs. Mike Easley named a new Superior Court judge in Guilford County, keeping the job in the family.
Easley chose District Attorney R- Stuart Albright for the judgeship -- replacing his father, W- Douglas Albright, who is retiring.

I met Stuart Albright a few times at University of North Carolina Law School. He was a tough prosecutor who advocated long sentences for criminals. He also came across as a very sincere lawyer with a lot of integrity. I congratulate him on his new post, and Mike Easley on a good appointment. Now let us get someone as good for the North Carolina Supreme Court.
