Britt Grant Confirmed as Eleventh Circuit Judge

Georgia Supreme Court Justice Britt Grant was confirmed by the U.S. Senate yesterday afternoon to fill the Eleventh Circuit judgeship created when Judge Julie Carnes elected to take senior status.  The vote was 52-46.  Justice Grant, 40, is not the youngest person to be confirmed for an Eleventh Circuit seat since the court was constituted in 1981.  That honor belongs to Senior Judge J.L. Edmondson.  The investiture of Judge Grant will bring the court to its full statutory complement of 12 active judges, six appointed by Democratic presidents and six appointed by Republicans.
