Georgia's first state business court judge to be nominated

By Staff
ATLANTA - Governor Brian Kemp plans to announce his nominee for the first statewide business court judgeship during a ceremony at the Georgia State Capitol Monday afternoon.
In a press release the governor's office said the new judgeship is part of Amendment 2, passed by Georgia voters during the general election in November, 2018.
The release explained that the language for the amendment was codified during the 2019 General Assembly, where it received bi-partisan support.
The ceremony is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. in the Governor's Ceremonial Office in Atlanta.
Kemp's nominee will need to be approved by both chambers of the state legislature.
