RALEIGH, NC – With just days remaining in her term, Governor Bev Perdue appointed three members of her administration to fill judicial positions, and reappointed a current member of the bench to his seat.

Perdue appointed Mark Davis to the North Carolina Court of Appeals, filling the vacancy created when Cheri Beasley was appointed to the state Supreme Court. According to a release from the Governor's office, Davis served the past two years as general counsel to Gov. Perdue. He also worked as a special deputy attorney general in the North Carolina Department of Justice from 2006 to 2011. 

Gov. Perdue appointed Kendra Hill as a special superior court judge.  Hill has served as the Chief Ethics Officer and Deputy General Counsel for the Office of the Governor since 2009. She previously spent nine years as Assistant Legal Counsel for the North Carolina School Boards Association.

Reuben F. Young, who currently serves as Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, was appointed as a special superior court judge.  Young worked in the NC Department of Justice for six years before moving to the Governor's office, where he served as deputy legal counsel and then chief legal counsel.

Gov. Perdue also reappointed Judge Calvin E. Murphy as a special superior court judge, where he has served since 2007. In 2010, Chief Justice Sarah Parker appointed Murphy to serve on North Carolina's Business Court as a special superior court judge for complex business cases.

In a statement accompanying the release, Gov. Perdue said "I am pleased and proud to appoint these outstanding public servants to judicial positions serving the people of North Carolina. I know they will perform their duties with distinction and honor."
