Georgia’s Administrative Office of the Courts issued a press release on June 22, 2022 that Judge Walter Davis will be leaving the State-wide business court. Judge Davis will continue to serve until his successor is sworn in.
As the first State-wide Business Court Judge, Judge Davis has been a dynamic force in establishing this new constitutional court in Georgia, including, among other things, drafting its procedural rules and traveling the state to educate judges and lawyers about the new court. Judge Davis was appointed in July 2019 and officially began his term on January 1, 2020. The court opened its doors in August 2020.
We recognize Judge Davis’ tremendous efforts with this business court, and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
