Andrew Fuller is stepping down from his position as chief judge of the Superior Court for the Northeastern Judicial Circuit, and Kathlene Gosselin will assume the role, according to a letter from Fuller dated July 9, 2018. Fuller will continue as a judge serving the circuit that includes Hall and Dawson counties. In the letter, Fuller noted the “wealth of knowledge and leadership that the other superior court judges possess” in his decision to step down. “I, along with Judge (Bonnie) Oliver, Judge (Jason) Deal and Judge (Clint) Bearden, look forward to continuing to be a part of, and contributing to, the judicial circuit that Judge Gosselin will now lead as our chief judge.”
