Thomas Co. judge to serve on high court

Posted: Updated:
THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A south Georgia Superior Court Judge will temporarily fill in on the Georgia Supreme Court after a Supreme Court Justice disqualified himself from a case.

Southern Circuit Chief Judge Harry Altman will replace Justice David Nahmias to hear the appeal in Grossi Consulting versus Sterling Currency Group.

The consulting firm is appealing a ruling in its dispute with a company that made millions trading Iraq currency.

 Justice Nahmias removed himself because his wife is a partner for an Atlanta law firm representing one of the parties in the case.

Judge Altman lives in Thomasville.
