North Carolina Associate Justice Robin Hudson does not plan to run for re-election in 2022. Justice Hudson, who will be 70 in February, would be required by North Carolina law to retire at the end of the month she reaches age 72 – serving only 13 months of an eight-year term.
“It doesn’t make sense to spend more than a year running in order to serve only thirteen months of a new term,” said Hudson. “It also wouldn’t be fair to my family, my colleagues and supporters to raise money and campaign under these circumstances. I would much prefer to spend my time devoted to the work of the Court, without the distraction that a re-election effort requires.”
Justice Hudson, who has served on the Supreme Court since January 2007, is the senior associate justice on the court. She also served as a judge on the North Carolina Court of Appeals from 2001 to 2006.
Since 2015 she has been Co-chair of the Committee on Judicial Independence for the National Association of Women Judges. “As in many states, North Carolina elects justices and judges to its courts. Voters must do their homework to choose judges who will be fair and impartial, rather than bringing a political agenda. The future of our courts is in their hands,” she said.
“I am extremely grateful and honored by the voters of North Carolina for electing me to serve on the courts since 2001 and will continue to contribute in other ways.”
