Presiding Justice George Carley will leave the Georgia Supreme Court in July 2012, handing Gov. Nathan Deal a chance to name a replacement to the state's highest court. The 73-year-old Carley said Tuesday he will step down July 17, after all cases from the court's January term have been decided. Whoever Deal appoints must run for election in 2014.
