UGA law grad appointed to 11th Circuit Court
President Obama has appointed Beverly Martin (JD ’81), a U.S. District Court judge in Atlanta since 2000, to a seat on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. Martin has presided over some high profile cases during her time as district court judge. In 2006, she denied an appeal by Wayne Williams, convicted of killing two people in 1981 and suspected in 22 other deaths. The 11th Circuit Court represents Georgia, Florida and Alabama.
