Carol Hunstein Elected Chief Justice

Carol W. Hunstein was elected as Chief Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court by her fellow justices to replace the retiring Leah Ward Sears. Hunstein previously served as presiding justice. When a vacancy appeared on the Supreme Court in 1992, then-governor Zell Miller appointed her to fill out the remaining term. She was subsequently elected to a full term - and has since won reelection.
