I'm placing this here because GCO's litigation often ends up in front of the Ga. Supreme Court. https://www.ajc.com/blog/politics/t...SHQbsfSN2O/amp.html?__twitter_impression=true "We do not know why Benham has pushed up his departure. But by stepping down on March 1, he gives Governor Kemp the chance to appoint his successor. And that pushes the election for that seat to 2022. According to state law, if a judicial appointment made six months before an election, the new incumbent is given a chance to get on his/her feet before facing voters in the next election cycle."
