Andrew J. Cobb, The Supreme
Court Judge
(By A. W. COZART)
Opinions written by Judge Cobb appear in the Georgia Reports
from 100 Georgia to 128 Georgia., both inclusive. His first opinion
appears in the case of Behere v. National Cash Register Company,
100 G. 213, and his last opinion appears in the case of Sapp v. Will-
iamson, 128 Ga. 743, filed July 13, 1907, but on the same date he
filed opinions in two other cases, to-wit: Hodges v. Stuart Lumber
Company, 128 Ga. 733; Rountree v. Gaulden, 128 Ga. 737. His res-
ignation took effect from October, 12, 1907.
An examination of our reports has led me to the following con-
clusions, which I believe to be correct:
1. No other Appellate Court judge in Georgia has ever render-
ed as many opinions in cases simplifying and systematizing ques-
tions of pleading and practice.
See the following cases; Kelly v. Strouse & Bros. 116 Ga. 872;
Toole v. Edmondson & Seay Bros., 104 Ga. 776; Glover v. State, 128
Ga. 1; Watson v. State, 116 Ga. 607.
2. He rendered opinions in more cases which have been cited
more times, within the same length of time, than did any other
Georgia Appellate Court Judge.
See the following twelve cases;
