RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Outgoing Gov. Beverly Perdue has announced the appointments of four people as judges, including her general counsel and a Cabinet secretary.
 
Perdue said Monday she's appointing general counsel Mark Davis to the state Court of Appeals and Department of Public Safety Secretary Reuben Young as a special Superior Court judge.  She also reappointed Calvin Murphy as a special Superior Court judge and appointed Kendra Hill as a special Superior Court judge.
 
The news release about the appointment lists no judicial experience for Hill, Young or Davis. Davis will be part of the state's second-highest-court, reviewing other judges' opinions. A Perdue spokeswoman didn't immediately return a call.
 
Hill had served as chief ethics officer and deputy general counsel for the governor. Murphy has been a special Superior Court judge since 2007.
