Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas addressed a standing-room-only crowd at the Georgia Capitol Tuesday, as Leah Ward Sears was sworn in as chief justice of the state Supreme Court. Thomas noted that the Court ended its term on Monday as "winds of controversy swirled about the Court's decisions, and, unfortunately, about the imagined resignations." Sears is Georgia's first female and second African-American chief justice.
