List of nominees for Georgia Court of Appeals shortens itself

From the Fulton Daily Report’s ATLAWblog:

After receiving a record 75 nominations for the upcoming Georgia Court of Appeals vacancy, the governor’s Judicial Nominating Commission received applications from fewer than half the nominees.

The JNC said 42 nominees either withdrew from consideration or did not submit applications to the JNC by its Nov. 19 deadline.

JNC co-chairman Randy Evans said a subcommittee including himself, DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James and Augusta District Attorney Ashley Wright, will pare the list of applicants down to “a more manageable” 15 to 20 candidates prior to interviews on Dec. 12.
