Perdue order creates panel, cedes power for judge picks (access required)

Saying "this is history," Gov. Bev Perdue signed an executive order last week that will establish a nominating commission to screen candidates for consideration when judicial vacancies come open.

The order takes effect July 1 and does not require any legislative action.
