Supreme Court of Georgia Appointments by Gov. Nathan Deal
I wish to extend my congratulations to three dear friends appointed by Gov. Nathan Deal to high office in our State’s Judiciary. I applaud the Governor’s choice, and I am very excited about the future of our High Court for decades to come. On August 22, 2018, Sarah Hawkins Warren of Atlanta was appointed as a justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia. On September 14, 2018, Gov. Nathan Deal appointed the Honorable Charlie Bethel as a justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia and Honorable Christian A. Coomer to the Court of Appeals of Georgia.
As former Solicitor General for the State of Georgia, Justice Warren is an exceptional candidate and person. She has served our state with intelligence and grace, and she will continue to do so in her new role as Justice on our Supreme Court. As former Judge on the Court of Appeals of Georgia, Justice Bethel is an intelligent, impartial and conservative person who will be a great addition to Georgia’s Highest Court. Justice Coomer is my dear friend, former suite-mate and House member representing District 14. He is a faithful Christian, strong leader, and discerning. I know both Justice Coomer and Justice Bethel to be strong family-men, loyal Georgians, good lawyers with a good sense of humor.
I look forward to their long service to the people of Georgia in the Judiciary.
