The United States District Court for the District of North Carolina was created by Congress in 1790[1]. In 1794, North Carolina was divided into three judicial districts: the Edenton, the New Bern, and the Wilmington[1]. In 1797, these districts were abolished, and the District of North Carolina was restored[1]. Again, four years later, the Judiciary Act of 1801 divided North Carolina into three districts: the Albemarle, the Cape Fear, and the Pamptico[1]. North Carolina was later re-formed into Eastern and Western Districts, and the District of North Carolina has never been restored[1].
