Georgia Supreme Court ruling says Walker must pay ex-judge, but county plans to appeal

Posted: Updated:

Walker County needs to pay roughly $79,000 to former State Court Judge Bruce E. Roberts in salary plus attorney's fees Roberts incurred in a 2012 lawsuit against the county, according to a recent ruling.

Roberts should have been paid the same amount as Judge C. Donald Peppers Sr., whom Roberts was appointed to replace on Oct. 3, 2012, wrote Senior Georgia Superior Court Judge Larry Salmon, of Rome, Ga.

"My attorney and I are obviously pleased with the verdict and that Judge Salmon simply followed the law," Roberts said by email Friday. He declined further comment because Walker County has 30 days to appeal Salmon's Oct. 28 ruling.
