SOUTHPORT, NC (WECT) -

Governor Pat McCrory has appointed attorney Jason Disbrow, of Southport, as District Court Judge for the 13th Judicial District that covers Brunswick, Bladen and Columbus counties.

The opening came about when Judge Marion Warren resigned after being named Director of the Administrative Office of the Courts by Chief Justice Mark Martin.

Disbrow will serve the remainder of Judge Warren's term, which expires next November. Disbrow will be sworn-in at 2:00 pm on Friday, December 4, at the Brunswick County Courthouse in Bolivia. 

According to the NC Board of Elections website, Disbrow recently filed paperwork to run for a District Court Judge’s seat in the 13th District. Disbrow says he will file Wednesday as a candidate to keep the seat that he will soon fill. Four seats will be on the ballot, held by Judges Hankins, Jolly, Ussery and Warren. 

Disbrow has been a partner in the firm of Stiller & Disbrow since 2003, according to a news release from the Governor’s office. He was an associate at the Southport firm from 1998-2003.
