Record #:
Providing a complete history of North Carolina’s District Courts entailed going back than the widely celebrated year of origin. With 1955, its true starting point, as a reference, the author traced the District Court’s history by first examining the Bell Commission’s role in this District Court’s creation and participation in the state’s 1959, 1961, and 1963 General Assemblies. Acknowledging the Bell Commission’s momentous role led into his examination of the Court Commission’s role from 1963-1989 and Futures Commission’s role from 1994-1997.
