Five finalists have been selected for the position of a full time circuit-wide Judge of the Fulton County Juvenile Court.
Those chosen from among 33 candidates are: Jim Barfield, Brad Boyd, Angela Davis, Phillip Jackson and Juliette Scales.
Applications were solicited by publication of notice in accordance with O.C.G.A. § 15-11-18(d). The statutory qualifications for appointment to this position are established by O.C.G.A. § 15-11-18(e). Applications were due to the Court by August 30, 2009.
The finalists are scheduled to be interviewed Oct. 26, 2009 by the Judges of the Superior Court of Fulton County. The 19 elected Fulton Superior Court Judges will make the final selection.
The Court appointed an independent Commission to interview and recommend finalists for the position vacated earlier this year by the tragic death of Judge Sanford J. Jones in an aviation crash.
The new Juvenile Court Judge is expected to be named prior to the end of 2009.
