District Court Judge Paul Holcombe and Representative N. Leo Daughtry were named to the North Carolina Commission on the Administration of Law and Justice by Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark Martin. It
is an independent, multidisciplinary commission that will undertake a comprehensive evaluation of our judicial system and make recommendations for strengthening our courts within the existing administrative framework. It consists of five committees including Civil Justice, Criminal Investigation and Adjudication, Legal Professionalism, Public Trust and Confidence, and Technology. Judge Holcombe was named to the Criminal Investigation and Adjudication Committee while Rep. Daughtry was selected to serve on the Legal Professionalism Committee.

According to a press release issued by Justice Martin, "The multidisciplinary commission will undertake a comprehensive evaluation of our state’s justice system and make recommendations for strengthening our courts within the existing administrative framework.

“These respected and innovative leaders will provide the direction necessary in this era of change, ensuring that the justice system works for all,” Chief Justice Martin said. “They bring with them decades of experience in the state and federal judiciaries, business and nonprofit communities, legal education, and private practice.”

The commission will finalize its findings and recommendations in a series of reports that will be presented to the Chief Justice and made available to the public in early 2017.
