Bill summary

House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.

Part I.

Further amends GS 7A-52 to authorize an emergency judge to be assigned in the event of a conflict of a sitting judge.

Repeals GS 45-21.21(f), which required a foreclosure sale to begin at the time designated in the notice of sale and never later than an hour after the time fixed, and required sales to be held between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on any day on which the Clerk's office is normally open (previously, only amended the statute to remove the time and date requirements for a foreclosure sale). Makes a clarifying change to GS 45-21.23 to require that the sale be held between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on any day when (was, on which) the Clerk's office is normally open.

Makes clarifying changes to the proposed changes to GS 84-32 to require that final judgments of censure, whether issued by the State Bar Grievance Committee or the disciplinary hearing commissioner, and final orders of suspension or disbarment issued by the disciplinary hearing commission be entered upon the judgment docket of the superior court where the respondent resides or practices and on the minutes of the NC Supreme Court (previously, required entry of final judgement of censure, suspension, and disbarment, with no distinctions). Adds that final determinations of incapacity or disability must be entered upon the judgment docket of the superior court in the same manner as those final judgments, whether issued by the State Bar Grievance Committee or the disciplinary hearing commission (previously not specified). Adds new provision establishing the final determination to be effective Statewide.

Further amends GS 7A-38.2 to make clarifying changes regarding the powers and duties of the chair of the Dispute Resolution Commission.

Modifies the proposed changes to GS 15A-1452, to require the clerk of superior court to notify (was, bring the matter to the attention of) the district attorney when an appeal is withdrawn for a judgment imposing a suspended sentence, who must calendar a review hearing as now required (was, as provided for) in the statute.

Part II.

Modifies the proposed changes to GS 7A-308, which adds a $300 fee for in rem foreclosures, by removing the provision that provided for an additional fee to be collected when the property is sold under execution and makes the $300 fee applicable only if the property is sold under execution. Makes conforming and clarifying changes to proposed GS 105-375(i1). 

Part III.

Further amends GS 7A-20 by making additional language gender-neutral.
