2018 Annual Meeting Featured Judge Norelli

Our 2018 Annual Meeting was held on Thursday, June 7 from 6 to 8:30 pm.

Former District Court Judge Nancy Black Norelli headlines the Annual Meeting of the LWVCM, discussing issues facing the judiciary, such as judicial redistricting and how state budget cuts have affected the system. Judge Norelli was one of the memorable speakers at the January Silent March in which the League participated protesting the proposed judiciary gerrymandering. Judge Norelli, first appointed in 2000 and then elected for two terms, presided over 60 civil jury trials; 1,000 Family Court matters, including equitable distribution, divorce, alimony, child custody and support, 300 juvenile cases and 7,000 DWI cases during her time on the bench. An often honored judge, she is a past president of the Mecklenburg County Bar and has served as a director since 2010 and vice chair since 2016 of Legal Services of the Southern Piedmont.
