Sonja Brown wins judgeship for Cobb Superior Court
Sonja Brown will become one of Cobb’s Superior Court Judges after defeating James Luttrell for the open position during the runoff election. According to unofficial election results, Brown received 21,111 votes, or 64%, to Luttrell’s 11,990 votes, or 37%.
The primary election was held last month with five persons seeking to fill the seat of retiring Judge Robert E. Flournoy III. Brown finished first in that race with 29% of the vote, and Luttrell finished second with 22%. With neither candidate obtaining 50 plus one percent of the votes, a runoff was triggered and held on June 21, 2022.
A former prosecutor, Brown currently serves as a full-time Cobb magistrate court judge.
