Robersonville Native Nominated For Federal Appeals Court

A man who was born and raised in Robersonville has been nominated by President Barack Obama to a federal appeals court.

The White House announced Wednesday the nominations of two North Carolina judges to fill seats on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Judge Jim Wynn, who currently sits on the N.C. Court of Appeals, is from Robersonville.

Wynn was nominated to the court by President Bill Clinton, but it was blocked by Senator Jesse Helms.

Also nominated is Judge Albert Diaz. He would become the court's first Hispanic judge.

The 4th Circuit covers North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.

    Why is this not surprising? obuma and this activist, constitution ignoring judge have the same mindset. Both are socialists and permanent victims of the man (at least in their twisted estimation). This nomination part of what happens when the American voter gets carried away trying to feel good about themselves and votes for someone because of it.
