No idea?  Good luck making a decision in Georgia

The Daily Report examined the judicial nominations of three Georgia governors from March 30, 2011 to February 22, 2021.

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and his successor, Governor Brian Kemp, appointed 157 people to the Georgia state supreme and appellate courts during this time. At least 123 are white. The ethnicity of one of the appointees — former Crawford County Magistrate Judge Richard Spencer, who agreed to the 2013 deal — was not disclosed in the court's administrative records.

For minorities, the numbers show they are five times less likely to be selected for a state court bench than their white counterparts.

Here's a look at what that means for many in the legal profession.
