RALEIGH — An appointed member of the North Carolina Court of Appeals says he wants to keep his seat on the 15-member intermediate appeals court.
Judge Mark Davis announced Monday he would run for a full term on the court in the 2014 election. Davis is a former special deputy attorney general who was most recently then-Gov. Beverly Perdue’s special counsel before she appointed him to the bench in late 2012 as she left office.
State law required Davis to seek re-election next year if he wanted his own eight-year term.
Davis said in a release he pledged to be fair to everyone who comes into his court and believes personal and political agenda shouldn’t enter into a judge’s decision-making.
The Court of Appeals meets in three-judge panels to hear cases.
