FamilyLawCourts.com - No one over eleven believes it's working.
There are two methods used to become a Georgia Superior Court judge:
1. A lawyer need only file and defeat an incumbent in an election for an open seat.
2. Appointment by the Governor, who selects from yet another highly political "blue ribbon" panel. Then the next election features the appointed judge as the incumbent...which usually guarantees a win, in part to low voter turnout.
Although this clearly isn't working, no member of the legislature has proposed to change the way Georgia goes about appointing judges. Ergo, the good people of Georgia, (and many other states) will continue to appear before the political, rather than the best.
