U.S. Attorney David Nahamias of Atlanta, a Bush appointee, has been handed a nice parachute.

Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue on Thursday appointed Nahamias to the Supreme Court of Georgia. He had served as U.S. Attorney since December 2004.

“His integrity, commitment to public service and strict adherence to the law as written will make him an excellent Justice,” Perdue said in a prepared statement.

Nahmias graduated second in his class at Duke University and magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, where he served as editor of Harvard Law Review, according to the governor’s press release.

After graduation, he clerked for U.S. Circuit Judge Laurence Silberman and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the press release said. He later worked at a law firm with John Roberts, now a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.

“I am deeply honored and humbled by Governor Perdue’s selection of me to serve as a Supreme Court Justice, a position that is so important to protecting the rule of law and the democratic system of government in this state,” Nahamias said in a prepared statement.
