Beasley sworn in to Court of Appeals bench

with 4 comments

Fayetteville Observer

An emotional Cheri Beasley was sworn in as a judge on the North Carolina Court of Appeals bench at an investiture ceremony today.

Beasley, 42, was a District Court judge in Fayetteville before toppling incumbent Judge Doug McCollough in November.

She became the first black woman to win election to statewide office without first being appointed by a governor, according to John C. Martin, the Court of Appeals chief judge who administered her oath.

The investiture ceremony was watched by more than 300 people in the old State House chamber, including Beasley’s mother, Lou, husband, Curtis, and twin sons.

Governor-elect Bev Perdue also attended, as did state Attorney General Roy Cooper and a host of judges from Fayetteville and across the state, including Patricia Timmons-Goodson, herself a former District Court and Court of Appeals judge who now serves in the state Supreme Court.

After she was sworn in, Beasley wept as she thanked her family for all their support.
