Press Release

WASHINGTON, DCCongressmen G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) and Walter B. Jones (NC-03), along with Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, recently celebrated the signing in to law of H.R. 3937, a bill to designate the United States courthouse located at 150 Reade Circle in Greenville, North Carolina, as the "Randy D. Doub United States Courthouse.”  Judge Doub was a judge for the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina and practiced law in private practice for over 25 years in Greenville, North Carolina.  He was a devout family man, friend to many, and a great man of faith. 

“Throughout his life, Judge Randy Doub made an incredible mark on eastern North Carolina,” said Congressman Butterfield.  “I am pleased that the passage of this bill will rightfully add to his legacy.  There is no more fitting way to honor the contributions of Judge Doub than to name the U.S. Courthouse in Greenville, where he served with such distinction, in his honor.  I thank my colleague Congressman Walter Jones for joining me in this effort to honor an outstanding North Carolinian and a great American.”

“Randy Doub was a good man,” Congressman Jones said.  “He lived his faith by serving others, loving his family, and giving back to his community and country.  One way he gave back was his work designing, creating, and overseeing the Greenville courthouse.  There is no better way to celebrate his life than renaming the building he cared so much about after him.  Thank you to my colleagues and President Obama for expeditiously passing this bill so we could properly honor Randy’s life.”

“Judge Randy Doub’s legacy will live on through the naming of this courthouse and the memories of those who knew and loved him,” said Senator Burr.  “Judge Doub was a man of faith and a friend to many in the Greenville community.”

“Judge Randy Doub was a dedicated civil servant who was committed to serving the people of North Carolina,” Senator Tillis said.  “I am happy the Greenville courthouse that he helped make a reality will now be named in his honor and his contribution to Eastern North Carolina will be long remembered.”
