To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Lovett Bennett Jr. of Statesboro on his recent reappointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as a Superior Court judge for the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit, covering Bulloch, Effingham, Jenkins and Screven counties.
Judge Bennett will be well served by his 35 years of experience in the legal profession, including service as Municipal Court judge for the cities of Brooklet and Register and in the private practice of law.
With his acceptance of this appointment, Judge Bennett demonstrates his ongoing commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish him well in this new capacity of judicial leadership.
