This article is drawn from the “Fulton County Daily Report”, at http://www.atlawblog.com/2012/05/deal-taps-two-for-enotah-circuit-judgeships/, an excellent publication attending to Georgia legal news.  My heartfelt congratulations go to former District Attorney and head of the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia, N. Stanley Gunter, who has a fine knowledge of the law and is an excellent administrator.  He genuinely deserves to be a Superior Court judge, and I believe he will prove to be an excellent choice.

I apologize for how late this information comes to this site – it is not meant to detract from its importance, but instead is honest commentary on how little practice I have performed recently in the Enotah Judicial Circuit, which I think highly of!

“Deal taps two for Enotah Circuit judgeships

3:48 pm, May 25th, 2012

Governor Nathan Deal today appointed the head of the Prosecuting Attorney’s Council and a sole practitioner in Dahlonega to fill the two vacant Superior Court judgeships in the Enotah Judicial Circuit.

Stan Gunter has been the executive director of the PAC since 2011 and previously was district attorney for 12
years in the Enotah circuit.  Raymond George runs his own firm and has been an assist district attorney in the Northeastern Judicial Circuit.

The governor’s Judicial Nominating Commission interviewed 15 applicants for the two vacancies and released a short
list of five candidates earlier this month. The other finalists were sole practitioner Stanley Lawson, chief magistrate judge Joy Parks and Hiawassee City Manager Richard Stancil.

The two vacancies arose in March after two judges, David Barrett and Lynn Akeley-Alderman, resigned in the wake of investigations into alleged misconduct by the Judicial Qualifications Commission.

The Enotah circuit includes Union, Towns, White and Lumpkin counties.

The governor’s office said swearing-in is set for June 7.
