North Carolina is facing a number of potential threats to the independence of our judiciary, including the gerrymandering of judicial districts, partisan judicial elections, shorter terms for judges, and possible appointment of judges by the legislature.

Justice Orr retired from the NC Supreme Court in 2004. He was born in Norfolk, Virginia and spent his childhood in Hendersonville, North Carolina. After earning his bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Orr served in the United States Army from 1968 to 1971. He returned to UNC-Chapel Hill to earn his law degree and then entered private law practice in Asheville, North Carolina. In 1986, Orr was appointed to the North Carolina Court of Appeals, and in 1994 was elected to the state's highest court, the NC Supreme Court. After retiring from the Supreme Court, Justice Orr headed the North Carolina Institute for Constitutional Law. Orr has also served on the United States National Park System Advisory Board, as an adjunct faculty member at North Carolina Central University, and as a member of the Board of Visitors for NCCU's Law School.
