Judge Porter congratulated

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I extend congratulations and thanks to Judge Richard Porter on his retirement from active service as Superior Court judge in the Southern Judicial Circuit.

Judge Porter has served the people of Baker, Calhoun, Decatur, Grady and Mitchell counties exceptionally well during his years as a Superior Court judge. The well-being of Georgia’s justice system depends upon the service of public-minded lawyers like Judge Porter. His distinguished performance as a public servant inspires the members of the legal profession.

Judge Porter’s colleagues of the State Bar wish him well in his new status as a senior judge. We are grateful for his distinguished service to the public and to the principle that fair and impartial courts are essential to the rule of law.

Jeffrey O. Bramlett, presidentState Bar of Georgia
