WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) introduced H.R. 3937 to name the United States Courthouse located at 150 Reade Circle in Greenville, North Carolina as the “Judge Randy D. Doub United States Courthouse.”
Randy Doub was an attorney in private practice before he was appointed as United States Bankruptcy Judge for the Eastern District of North Carolina in 2006. He was known as a hardworking, fair, and compassionate jurist, becoming the Court’s Chief Justice in 2007. Sadly, Judge Doub passed away suddenly earlier this year at the age of 59.
“Judge Doub was an outstanding public servant and leader who was always held in the highest regard by all who knew him,” said Butterfield. “Judge Doub’s family inspired and his faith guided everything he did. Naming the United States Courthouse in Greenville in his honor is a fitting way to commemorate a man who gave so much of himself to the Pitt County community he loved.”
Butterfield introduced the bill with the support of the entire North Carolina Congressional Delegation.
