Five months ago, the Supreme Court of North Carolina installed a new Clerk of Court. Want to get to know Grant Buckner better? The NCBA has uploaded a recent interview with Grant entitled “Breakfast with Buckner.”

For those accustomed to calling the clerk to discuss appellate-rules compliance, the good news is that Grant intends to keep that tradition alive. Even better, Grant has an appellate-rules background that has equipped him to hit the ground running with the bar’s trickiest rule-based questions. The interview also has some exciting previews for the future. High on the wish list for most appellate practitioners: the promise of a complete overhaul of the record on appeal system after the trial courts convert to an online filing system.

The interview is packed with information, so grab a cup a coffee and listen for yourself. Special thanks to Dan Gibson for putting this event together.
