Wake CARES may need a new lawyer after next week.
Bob Hunter, the lead attorney for Wake CARES, is running on Tuesday for a seat on the N.C. Court of Appeals. If he wins, he'll need to step away from his legal practice.
"I certainly wish him well but we'll miss him," said Kathleen Brennan, a co-founder of Wake CARES.
Brennan said that Hunter's law firm — Hunter, Higgins, Miles, Elam, & Benjamin — will take over if he wins the court seat.
Hunter is running against incumbent Judge John Arrowood. He's not one of the three judges who served on the panel that ruled against Wake CARES in the year-round lawsuit.
