To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations Douglas County Superior Court Chief Judge David T. Emerson on his recent appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve on the Georgia Criminal Case Data Exchange Board.
All Georgians will benefit from Judge Emerson’s service on the board, which promulgates rules with respect to courts receiving criminal case filings electronically and the exchange of data between agencies and entities from inception to conclusion. He also chairs the Judicial Council of Georgia’s Standing Committee on Judicial Workload Assessment and serves an ex-officio director of the Georgia Technology Authority.
With his acceptance of this appointment, Judge Emerson demonstrates his continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish him well in this new position of statewide leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
