Lewis Backs Out Of Court Candidates Forum

The Federalist Society held a major forum this week for candidates seeking office in the North Carolina Court System.  Regrettably, I was unable to attend, but it looks like the event was a great success:

We’ve covered some of the main races here on the blog, including the interesting Supreme Court Justice race. Both Supreme Court Justice candidates (Justice Mark Martin and Judge Ola Lewis) were invited to the forum, however it looks like Judge Ola Lewis backed out due to an ‘unspecified’ conflict:

A pair of candidates for three of the seats took questions from a moderator and answered to about 75 attorneys. Newly appointed Chief Justice Mark Martin, who is seeking an eight-year term in the post in November, spoke alone to the group. His challenger, Superior Court Judge Ola Lewis, withdrew shortly before the event, citing an unspecified scheduling conflict, according to the Federalist Society, the sponsor. – WRAL
