Superior Court Judge Ola Lewis has filed for re-election to her seat. No one had yet filed to challenge her in the nonpartisan race as of press time Tuesday.
Also seeking to retain their seats on the bench are district court judges William F. Fairley and Sherry Dew Tyler. They filed two weeks ago for their seats in the 13th Judicial District.
The district covers Brunswick, Bladen and Columbus counties.
In 2007, Gov. Mike Easley appointed Fairley, of Southport, to the seat vacated by the appointment of Judge Doug Sasser to Superior Court.
