As part of its bicentennial celebration, the Supreme Court will be presiding in Halifax County in the town of Halifax on May 13, 2019. The Supreme Court has held sessions of court outside of the City of Raleigh only seven times since August 1861. Under state law, the Supreme Court can meet in only two other cities outside of Raleigh - Edenton and Morganton. Per Chief Justice Mark Martin’s request to the General Assembly, the Supreme Court is allowing the justices to convene in cities across the state during the Court’s 2018-2020 bicentennial celebration.


“The Supreme Court is celebrating its 200th anniversary next year in 2019, and as part of the celebration we’re bringing the court to the people,” said Chief Justice Mark Martin.


Arguments before the court will be held at 9:30 A.M. and 11:00 AM. Due to limited seating, these sessions of court are ticketed events.
