Retired Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice Harris Hines has died

About an hour ago the Marietta Daily Journal posted the Justice Hines had passed away due to a car accident he and his wife were involved in earlier today between Newnan and their Cobb County home.

Many of our contributors knew Justice Hines, and you will hear more from them about his exemplary life of a family man and public servant over the next few days.

We wish Helen, Justice Hines’ wife, a speedy recovery and all of our prayers over the coming days.
