Congrats to Jeff Davis, Champion of Judicial Ethics

Jeff Davis has been appointed as the new Executive Director of the State Bar of Georgia. Before that, he was the Director of the Georgia JQC, the agency that governs ethics and Georgia judges.

Georgia lawyers and citizens should be proud. I don’t know much about the JQC from before Mr. Davis was its director, but I know for a fact that the JQC had some teeth while he was in charge. In the last five or so years, the JQC has made the judiciary a better place. In fact, I would credit the JQC with bringing several judicial circuits not only into the 21st century but out of the 19th.

Under his leadership, many judges are gone who needed to go. And at approximately the same time that Mr. Davis’s new job was being announced, the JQC was being recognized with a First Amendment Award for its work in ensuring that courtrooms were made more open to the public.

Congratulations to Jeff Davis. If you see him, thank him for his public service.
