The Supreme Court of Georgia has appointed the chief judge of the Macon Judicial Circuit to one of its two seats at the state judicial watchdog agency.
Chief Superior Court Judge Tilman “Tripp” Self III will replace Brenda Weaver, chief judge of the Appalachian Circuit, who resigned as chairwoman of the state Judicial Qualifications Commission this summer after formal complaints were filed against her, stemming from her role in securing an indictment against a North Georgia publisher and his attorney. The indictment, which stemmed from the publisher’s attempt to get access to bank records associated with Weaver’s court operating budget, was later dismissed. The JQC repeatedly has refused to confirm that Weaver is under investigation, although at least one news organization has confirmed that it filed a formal ethics complaint against her.
