AN ACT TO ALLOW JUSTICES AND JUDGES ELECTED TO OFFICE PRIOR TO THE JUSTICE OR JUDGE'S SEVENTY-SECOND BIRTHDAY TO COMPLETE THE ELECTED TERM OF OFFICE PAST THE MANDATORY JUDICIAL RETIREMENT AGE OF SEVENTY-TWO.
Amends GS 7A-4.20, which sets an age limit for service as a justice and judge. Adds a new provision to allow a justice or judge elected to office prior to the justice's or judge's seventy-second birthday to complete the elected term of office despite the age limit. Specifies that the new provision does not prevent the justice's or judge's removal from office under other statutes. Makes conforming changes and makes the language gender-neutral.
