Breaking News: "Retention" Elections for Judges Ruled Unconstitutional in NC

The Twitterverse is saying that the three-judge panel which heard lawyer Sabra Faires' case challenging "retention" elections for NC Supreme Court judges -- just two days ago -- has now ruled in her favor. More to come.

If this is true, then what happens? The appeal would have to go to the NC Supreme Court, which has a clear conflict of interest in the issue, since every one of the justices would eventually and conceivably benefit from retention elections.

Another fine mess you've created for us, NC General Assembly!
