Re: Leah Sears--Correction to "Supreme Court: Souter's Replacement--A Short List," May 8, 2009 Post

Leah Sears is the first African-American WOMAN to serve as Georgia's Chief Justice. Her predecessor, Robert Benham, was the first African-American to hold that position.

Thanks to Jim Todd, a fellow University of Georgia alum of Justice Benham [and a dear friend and fellow University of Virginia alum of mine], for pointing out my error.

[Thanks to the wonders of blogging, I've already made the correction on the May 8 post.]
