Circuit Court Judge C. Creed McGinley of Savannah announced last week that he is retiring effective Oct. 31, the Courier reports. In a letter to Gov. Bill Lee, McGinley said he is giving notice “well in advance” so the selection process for his replacement can begin and the post be filled by Nov. 1. “The pandemic has created backlog and it is imperative that there be no delay in my successor assuming their duties,” McGinley wrote. McGinley has served as 24th Judicial District circuit court judge since January 1988. He says he will pursue being named a senior judge following his retirement.
