To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Justice Britt C. Grant of the Supreme Court of Georgia on her nomination by President Donald Trump and confirmation by the U.S. Senate to serve as a judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.
Justice Grant will be well served by her 10 years of experience as a member of the State Bar of Georgia, including service as solicitor general for the State of Georgia and, additionally, as a law clerk to U.S. Court of Appeals Judge and current U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh.
With her acceptance of this nomination and confirmation, Justice Grant demonstrates her ongoing commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish her well in this new capacity of judicial leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
