For immediate release

In 2008, David Ruder began serving as the Louisburg Municipal Court judge. He was hired, in part, based on representations that he was a licensed attorney. In December 2022, the city became aware that Mr. Ruder allowed his law license to lapse and had never taken the certification examination that allows non-attorneys to sit as a municipal court judge. 

Within days of learning this information, City officials contacted Mr. Ruder. He confirmed the accuracy of this information and immediately resigned.  

Since that time, an internal investigation is ongoing.
