To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Lance Cooper of The Cooper Firm and State Bar President-Elect Darrell Sutton of the Sutton Law Group, both of Marietta, on their recent appointments by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve on the Judicial Nominating Commission.
All Georgians will benefit from their service on the commission, which is responsible for receiving applications, interviewing candidates and making recommendations to the governor for appointments to judicial vacancies across the state.
With their acceptance of this important task, Mr. Cooper and Mr. Sutton demonstrate their continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish them well in this new capacity of leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
