Ga. Supreme Court Justice Sworn In

On Thursday Governor Sonny Perdue swore David Nahmias in as the newest member of the Supreme Court of Georgia.

The ceremony took place at the state Capitol in the House chambers.

Nahmias replaces former Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears, who stepped down this past June.

Nahmias served as the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia since December 2004. He was appointed by President George W. Bush to that position.

After the swearing in, Nahmias thanked many of the people who helped him in his life and career.

He's known as being a staunch conservative, and his career includes a clerkship to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
