Atlanta, GA - Georgia Supreme Court Justice David Nahmias is
trying to stave off two challengers to win a six-year term on the
bench as voters headed to the polls.
Nahmias, who was tapped to join the court in August 2009, faces
Atlanta attorney Matt Wilson and Lawrenceville lawyer Tamela Adkins
in his bid for a full term on the state's highest court.
Nahmias is a former clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin
Scalia and worked with the law firm of future U.S. Supreme Court
Chief Justice John Roberts before he was appointed Atlanta's top
federal prosecutor in 2004 by President Bush.
Gov. Sonny Perdue tapped him to join the seven-judge court after
Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears stepped down.
