Fourth Circuit nominee Allyson Duncan sworn in as president of the N.C. bar

The AP has this report on the installation of Allyson Duncan as the new president of the North Carolina Bar Association, the first black lawyer to hold that post. The article notes that "A Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on her nomination is slated for this week. If the full Senate approves, Duncan could become the first North Carolinian on the court in four years." Also, it says that if it becomes too much work being bar president and Fourth Circuit judge, Ms. Duncan would resign from the bar position.
