It is with great sadness that we must report the passing of the Honorable Judge James E. Barber.
Judge Barber served as a judge in Fulton County Court of Common Pleas for 30 years before retiring. He would have celebrated his 2 year anniversary as a visiting judge with our court in January, 2021.
When asked, TBA President William Meyer shared that Judge Jim Barber is best described by his own words: "I address each person as a person I respect, as a child of God". That is the way he treated lawyers and parties before him. He had a kindness about him that he extended to everyone he met, including exchange students from the other side of the world. Our condolences to his wife, Sandy, and the rest of his family. Judge Barber will be missed by all those who had the honor of working with him or practicing before him. Rest in Peace.
