ATLANTA (AP) - The state agency charged with investigating judicial misconduct will be headed by a judge for the first time in its 42-year history.

Judicial Qualifications Commission Chairman Robert Ingram tells the Daily Report (http://bit.ly/1pyUKi3 )  Pataula Circuit Superior Court Judge Ronnie Joe Lane was named this week as the agency's director.

Lane, who will be the commission's fourth director, replaces attorney Jeff Davis who has led the agency since 2010.

Davis is leaving to become executive director of the State Bar of Georgia. Lane, who's 67, has been a member of the Judicial Council of Georgia for six years and served on the executive committee of the state Council of Superior Court Judges.

Ingram says Lane will retire from his job as a superior court judge before he starts at the commission.
