Georgia Supreme Court to have new Chief Justice for two months
Georgia: Presiding Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court George Carley was sworn in as the court's Chief Justice on Tuesday May 29, 2012. Carley will only serve as Chief Justice through July, when he is retiring from the bench.
His short stint as Chief Justice is to serve as a farewell and sign of appreciation; Carley will retire with the honor of being the first person to have served as presiding and chief judge on the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court. Carol Hunstein, the previous Chief, proposed the two-month switch. She will resume her post as Chief Justice after Carley's retirement.
