Visiting Georgia’s Supreme Court
Posted on May 29, 2014 by Stacy Anthony
A group of St. George Village residents recently experienced a very interesting visit to the Supreme Court of Georgia.
Therese (Tee) Barnes, Supreme Court Clerk and daughter of St. George Village resident Mildred Stiffler, arranged the tour, which included viewing a court video in the courtroom and a visit with Presiding Justice P. Harris Hines from Cobb County. Judge Hines gave an informative presentation and then answered questions. The group also was given a “behind-the-scenes” look at the robing room, and several SGV residents actually donned robes for a group photo in the courtroom with Judge Hines. At the end of the tour, each visitor received a gift bag, which included a pen set engraved with the words, “Supreme Court of Georgia.”
Our group was honored to receive such hospitality from the Court employees and to have the opportunity for this most memorable experience!
