Gov. Brian Kemp has announced the Honorable Andrew Pinson as his pick to fill the vacancy on the Georgia Supreme Court once Chief Justice Nahmias steps down this summer.
“I am proud to announce The Honorable Andrew Pinson as my appointment to serve on the Georgia Supreme Court,” said Governor Brian Kemp. “Judge Pinson will bring with him to the highest court a deep understanding of how the application of the law affects the everyday lives of hardworking Georgians. He is a brilliant jurist having learned from some of our nation’s top legal minds – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Judge David Sentelle on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia – and his career thus far demonstrates to me that he will fairly apply the rule of law as written and do right by our citizens.”
Judge Pinson was born in DeKalb County and grew up in Lithonia, Lawrenceville and Lincolnton. He earned his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Georgia. He and his wife Sara Beth Moore Pinson live in DeKalb County.
Editor’s Note: Judge Pinson is a great pick for the state’s highest court. His selection is great news for conservatives in the State of Georgia.
