How the Court System Works: Hear from Local Judges
CJJ members have been invited to this community event by The League of Women Voters of Orange, Durham and Chatham Counties (LWVODC). This event is not hosted by CJJ.
LWVODC invites the community to join us on Wednesday April 19, 2023, at 6:30 pm for an online discussion "How the Court System Works: Hear from Local Judges". Hear first-hand from local judges about how the courts work, the kinds of cases they hear, how cases may have changed over the years, and more.
Three distinguished guests will be joining us:
- Judge Allen Baddour of the Chatham and Orange Counties’ Superior Court,
- Judge Samantha Cabe of the Chatham and Orange Counties’ District Court and
- Judge Shamieka Rhinehart of the Durham Superior Court.
The judges will discuss the basics of the court system, how cases come to them, how changing laws affect cases, obstacles to obtaining justice and what happens once a ruling is handed down. This online event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
Please register here to join us on Wednesday April 19th.
