Georgia State-wide Business Court Judge Walter Davis has tendered his resignation to Gov. Brian Kemp. Davis, 46, said he will return to the private sector as soon as a successor can be chosen.

By state law, that successor must be nominated by the governor and confirmed jointly by the judiciary committees of the Georgia Senate and House of Representatives. That confirmation for Davis came in August 2019, while he was a business litigator and managing partner for the Jones Day Atlanta office. Kemp nominated Davis in July 2019, staging a dramatic reveal with a news conference at the state Capitol.
