RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA (BNO NEWS) – North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue on Monday appointed Karen Eady-Williams to the District Court bench for the 26th Judicial District, the Governor’s Office announced.
The District Court Bench became vacant after the resignation of Judge William Belk back in November 2009, after a controversial term and facing misconduct charges.
“The lawyers in the 26th District sent me a tremendous list of candidates to select from,” said Gov. Perdue. “I am confident that Karen Eady-Williams will serve the people of the 26th District with distinct and professionalism.”
Eady-Williams served seven years as an Assistant U.S. attorney for the Western District of North Carolina. Before her appointment, she was the vice president and assistant general counsel for six years with Wachovia in its legal division.
