YLD Litigation Committee Welcomes Georgia Supreme Court Justice David Nahmias

L-R: John Hadden, Justice Nahmias,
Brandon Smith, Lara Percifield
Georgia Supreme Court Justice David Nahmias was the guest speaker at today's "War Stories in Litigation," sponsored by the Litigation Committee of the State Bar Young Lawyers Division. Turkheimer & Hadden partner John Hadden serves as co-chair of the Litigation Committee.

Justice Nahmias, a Harvard Law School  grad and Harvard Law Review editor who was appointed to the state high court in 2009, previously served as the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia, where he had previously worked as an Assistant US Attorney. During his time in that office, he was involved in the investigation into, and then prosecution of, Olympic Park bomber Eric Rudolph, which he spoke about today. He also spoke about his time as counsel to the US Attorney General, where he assisted with investigations into Al Qaeda following the September 11, 2001 attacks.

The War Stories Program was created to give younger lawyers the opportunity to meet with more experienced judges and litigators from around the state. This year we were joined by lawyers BJ Bernstein and Jim Butler, and past programs have included Governor Roy Barnes, Tommy Malone, Adam Malone, Emmett Bondurant, Tom Carlock, Lin Wood, and many others. Brandon Smith served as subcommittee chair for the War Stories program this year.
