Gov. Deal Appoints 3 New Ga. Supreme Court Justices

Nov 9, 2016

Gov. Nathan Deal is remodeling the states's judicial branch.

He named three new justices to the Supreme Court of Georgia Wednesday. Two of them come from a new law that expands the high court, starting in January.

Nels Peterson and Michael Boggs will be promoted from the Court of Appeals. Boggs also co-chairs the Georgia Council on Criminal Justice Reform. The governor's other pick is Solicitor General Britt Grant.

Those choices mean even more high-profile vacancies for Deal to fill. That's because the appointments leave holes on the Court of Appeals and in the Attorney General's office.
