Rockdale County Superior Court Judge Sidney Nation’s courtroom was packed Friday afternoon, but this time it was not for a riveting trial or court proceedings. Colleagues, attorneys, clerks, deputies, law enforcement and many from Rockdale’s legal community gathered to send off the senior Superior Court judge, who is retiring after a quarter century of carefully considering and ruling on cases.
Conyers Mayor Randy Mills also presented a resolution by the Conyers City Council declaring Nov. 30, 2012 as Judge Sidney Nation Day.
An oil painting portrait of Nation, funded by the Rockdale Bar Association, was also unveiled (above) with a reception following.
