End of an Era! 

It is with deep regret that we announce that our beloved editor of this publication Carl Greenberg has now retired from writing and editing “What’s the Decision.” Carl has been GACDL’s longest producing editor of “What’s the Decision,” with a run of 17 years! It is difficult to imagine the amount of time and effort that Carl has given to this project every single month for such a long time. He did it all as a volunteer out of the goodness of his very large heart. Carl is a true believer who succeeded in giving GACDL’s members the best, most accurate information on current opinions, in an enjoyable and readable format. GACDL can never adequately thank Carl enough for this incredible gift. If you would like to thank Carl personally, please do so at: GACDL is pleased to announce that Margaret Heinen will be following in Carl’s footsteps as the next editor of “What’s the Decision.” GACDL’s Executive VP Scott Key will continue to edit the 11th Circuit decisions, working closely with Margaret.

GACDL's new Legislative Liaison, Mazie Lynn Causey 

NEW LEGISLATIVE LIAISON- After a tremendous tenure of advocacy under the Gold Dome, Sandra Michaels will no longer be leading legislative efforts for GACDL. We are indebted to Sandra for her years of ensuring that the perspective of both the criminal defense bar and our clients has had a meaningful voice.

We are pleased to welcome Mazie Lynn Causey as our next legislative advocate. Prior to accepting this position, Mazie Lynn has focused her practice on indigent defense having worked for the Georgia Justice Project, the DeKalb County Public Defender, and the Georgia Capital Defender. Mazie Lynn will continue to build on Sandra’s efforts in her work with the Legislative Committee, the General Assembly, and the Governor’s Council on Criminal Justice Reform.

Please join me in welcoming Mazie Lynn to her new role.

Thank you,

Robert G. Rubin, President, GACDL
