McCrory Appoints Lawyer To NC Appeals Court

Gov. Pat McCrory has appointed a Winston-Salem lawyer to a vacant seat on the North Carolina Court of Appeals.

McCrory's office announced Monday the governor appointed Richard Dietz to the appeals court bench.

Dietz will fill the seat vacated by Judge Bob Hunter Jr., whom McCrory appointed last week to the state Supreme Court. Dietz will serve the remainder of Hunter's term, which expires in 2016.

The 37-year-old Dietz is a partner with Kilpatrick Townsend in Winston-Salem specializing in state and federal appeals cases. He is a 2002 graduate of Wake Forest University School of Law.

McCrory appointed Dietz last year to the North Carolina Courts Commission, which studies the court system and recommends changes and improvements.
