Cobb County Superior Court Judge C. LaTain Kell Sr./John Disney/Daily Report Cobb County Superior Court Judge C. LaTain Kell Sr./John Disney/Daily Report

Tain Kell has some obvious advantages in the contest for Georgia Supreme Court. He’s on the board of advisers for the Federalist Society, an influential conservative legal group that has produced most of Gov. Nathan Deal’s judicial appointments. He served on the sentencing committee for the Georgia Council on Criminal Justice Reform, a movement dear to the governor’s heart. And he presides over two accountability courts, which are fundamental to the criminal justice reform movement.
