WASHINGTON - The Senate, last week, confirmed an Augusta attorney as the next judge for the federal court's Southern District of Georgia.
President Bush had earlier nominated James Randall Hall to fill the judicial vacancy created when B. Avant Edenfield elected to take senior status effective in 2006.
Both of Georgia's senators had recommended Hall for the post. The Republicans also praised Hall during the confirmation.
"Randy Hall is a attorney with a reputation for integrity and character," Johnny Isakson said on the Senate floor. "I am pleased the Senate has confirmed this fine jurist."
"The Southern District of Georgia will be well-served with Randy Hall on the bench," Saxby Chambliss said. "I'm pleased my Senate colleagues join me in supporting his confirmation."
Hall currently serves as a partner with Warlick Tritt Stebbins & Hall, LLP. He previously served in the Georgia State Senate as a senator for the 22nd District. He graduated from Augusta College in 1979 and from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1982. He serves on the Augusta-Richmond County Community Partnership for Children and Families and attends the Trinity on the Hill United Methodist Church.
