To the Editor:

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of retired DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Hilton M. Fuller Jr. on his passing at the age of 82.

A Georgia Bar member since 1964, Judge Fuller began his legal career as a successful litigation attorney prior to his election as a Superior Court judge. He presided over many high-profile court cases during his 25 years of full-time service, followed by many years as a senior judge. He further served the judiciary as president of the Georgia Council of Superior Court Judges, among other positions of leadership. 

Judge Hilton Fuller will be missed and fondly remembered by his fellow members of Georgia’s legal community. We appreciate his career-long dedication and the many contributions he made through his service to the public and the justice system.
