Episode 127: The Persecution of a State Supreme Court Justice


An increasing number of state court judges and justices are being targeted by state officials for not advancing their interests. On this episode, Taonga Leslie speaks with Dawn Blagrove (Emancipate NC) about how Justice Anita Earls, the only Black justice on the North Carolina Supreme Court, is being targeted for factual remarks she made about the lack of diversity on the NC judiciary. They discuss why the situation in North Carolina should concern everyone who cares about judicial independence and achieving a judiciary that reflects the diversity of the public it serves.
