To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend congratulations to N. Staten Bitting Jr. of Fulcher Hagler LLP in Augusta on his appointment by the Supreme Court of Georgia to serve on the Georgia Commission on Dispute Resolution.
All Georgians will benefit from Mr. Bitting’s service on the commission, which seeks to provide for the speedy, efficient and inexpensive resolution of disputes and prosecutions in the judiciary by managing a statewide system of alternatives to traditional litigation, including mediation, non-binding arbitration and case evaluation.
By accepting this appointment, Staten Bitting demonstrates his commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish him well in this new capacity of statewide leadership.
Dawn M. Jones
President, State Bar of Georgia
