Q&A: A conversation with Paul Newby, Duke alum and newly elected NC chief justice

(02/26/21 6:51am)

Paul Newby, Trinity ’77, defeated former Chief Justice Cheri Beasley in last year’s election for chief justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court by a mere 401 votes out of 5.4 million total votes cast. Democrats had held a 6-1 majority on the state’s highest court, but that majority narrowed to 4-3 after the November elections.
