An important meeting
3:03 pm, September 14th, 2010
Georgia Supreme Court Justice P. Harris Hines had an appointment this morning, but it wasn’t to hear oral arguments or meet with lawyers.
At 11 a.m., Hines said he was waiting on the steps of the State Capitol to meet a homeless man named J.J.
Hines recently left his cell phone on top of his vehicle and accidentally drove away. When he realized the phone was gone, Hines used his wife’s phone to call his number to see if anyone had found it. J.J. answered and offered to return the phone if Hines would meet him at the Capitol, near where he usually sleeps on the street.
During a news conference being held by Republican attorney general candidate Sam Olens, J.J. kept his promise and handed over the phone.
