The resignation of the Chattooga County State Court Solicitor is official. Solicitor Tim Perry says he mailed his resignation to Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue yesterday and will no longer be associated with that post.

“I plan to run for state court judge,” Attorney Tim Perry told The Summerville News on Friday afternoon.

The Summerville attorney cited problems with how Judge Sam Finster runs state court as one reason for his decision to resign.
