Gov. Nathan Deal on Monday named Court of Appeals Judge Keith Blackwell as his pick for the state Supreme Court.
Blackwell, 36, has been a judge since Gov. Sonny Perdue appointed him to the appeals court in the fall of 2010. He will replace George Carley, who is retiring from the bench on July 17.
Deal’s choice means the governor also will get to choose a new Court of Appeals judge.
