Senate Honors Long-time Juvenile Court Judge

On February 3, 2015, Judge Cliff Jolliff was recognized by the Georgia Senate for his 24 years of service as a Juvenile Court Judge in Hall County.
altSenate Resolution 128 commended Judge Jolliff, who retired on December 31 and has assumed senior judge status, for his “significant organizational and leadership talents, his remarkable patience and diplomacy, his keen sense of vision, and his sensitivity to the needs of the citizens of this state.”  The resolution was sponsored by Sen. Butch Miller (R-49).
In 1990, Judge Jolliff was appointed as part-time juvenile court judge and became the full-time judge in 1992.  He served as President of the Council of Juvenile Court Judges, as a member of the Georgia Commission on Family Violence, on the Supreme Court Child Placement Project, and a member of the Judicial Council. Additionally, the Hall County Family Treatment Court was created in 2006 by Judge Jolliff to help parents battle substance abuse.
