Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) appointed Superior Court Judge Verda Colvin to serve on the Georgia Court of Appeals on March 26. Colvin was one of two judges recently appointed to fill vacancies on the appeals court. The other vacancy was created when Carla McMillian was appointed to the Georgia Supreme Court.
Gov. Nathan Deal (R) first appointed Colvin to the Macon Circuit of the 3rd Superior Court District of Georgia on March 24, 2014. Colvin won election to a full term on the bench after running unopposed in the general election on May 24, 2016. Prior to becoming a superior court judge, she was an attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Colvin received her undergraduate degree from Sweet Briar College and her J.D. from the University of Georgia. All three of Gov. Kemp’s judicial appointments last week were University of Georgia School of Law alumni.
