HB 88: Superior courts; qualifications for judges; revise

Voted on Tuesday February 7, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

Requires that Superior Court judges be ‘in good standing’ with the GA State Bar in addition to the other legal requirements

If a judge is disbarred as a lawyer, they can no longer serve as a Superior Court Judge
