Justice | Supreme Court of Georgia
What do you do in your role? In an average year, my
Court issues over 350 published opinions (of which I write
about 1/9th) and disposes of well over 1,500 other matters
without opinion; each justice participates in every case, unless
recused. We’ve consistently been named the busiest state
supreme court in the country over the last two decades.
Beyond deciding cases, we also have significant responsibility
for administering the Georgia justice system. In an ordinary
year, I’m the Court’s point-person for overseeing the practice of
law, including the State Bar of Georgia; overseeing admission
to the practice of law, including the bar exam; and overseeing
the rulemaking process for all classes of Georgia trial courts.
Of course, this hasn’t been an ordinary year, so in addition to
all that, there’s also been quite a lot of work to keep the justice
system running as much as possible while also preserving
public health. Vaccines can’t get here soon enough.
What drives you to be successful? I have been
blessed with the opportunity and responsibility to do something
that matters. The least I can do is to steward that
What are some of your hobbies outside of work?
Making dinner; helping with homework (when I can understand
it); long-suffering fan of the Braves, Dawgs and Falcons.
What lessons have you learned in 2020? A lot of
things we thought mattered really don’t, like making sure the
kids do all the activities and what we think other people think
about us. The small handful of things that we knew mattered
really do: faith, family, friends and serving others. I hope these
truths will stay fresh in the years ahead.
Also, open floor plans have outlived their useful life.
