Riding the Pine with Chief Judge Joe Bishop

When the first superior courts were established in Georgia, there were just four counties divided into two judicial circuits.  As the state expanded, so did the number of counties and judicial circuits. Today Georgia's 159 counties are divided into 49 judicial circuits, many of which are multi-county circuits. In those circuits, judges "ride the pine" or "ride the circuit," traveling from county to county to hear cases.
