GBI Director and GA Deputy AG appointed to Cobb Superior Court bench
Former Cobb District Attorney turned Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) Director Vic Reynolds is returning to Cobb County after being appointed to the Cobb Superior Court bench by Gov. Brian Kemp.
In 2019, Kemp named Reynolds the GBI director after he had served two terms as Cobb District Attorney. He also served as a police officer and was the former chief magistrate judge of Cobb County. Also appointed by Kemp to a judgeship was Deputy Attorney General Julie Adams Jacobs. Reynolds and Jacobs will fill vacancies created by the retirements of Judge LaTain Kell and Judge Mary Staley Clark.
A graduate of Emory Law School, Jacobs worked in the attorney general’s office for nearly 20 years and is the deputy attorney general of the Commercial Transactions and Litigation Division. Her areas of practice include contract disputes, procurement, banking, lottery operations, bankruptcy, securities, hospital acquisitions, and general business matters.
Reynolds’ replacement as GBI director will be named at a later date, the governor’s office said.
