North Carolina’s judiciary is rapidly becoming a comprised branch of government as new legislation has significantly changed the branch. Several laws passed by the General Assembly have changed campaign financing laws for judges, changed the review process for determining whether a law is unconstitutional or not, and stripped the Judicial Standards Commission of most of its regulatory ability. The North Carolina Bar Association has asked the governor to veto some of the legislation and commentators worry that the new changes will make judges partisan as they are influenced by large campaign donations.
