Mayor Jason Lary administered the oath of office on Aug. 30 to Stonecrest’s first two municipal judges. Jonathan Weintraub was sworn in as the chief judge and Michael Sheridan took the oath for the judge pro tem.
Weintraub and Sheridan are not newcomers to the DeKalb legal system. Weintraub was the county attorney for seven and a half years and served two years as deputy chief operating officer and legal counsel to the chief operating officer. Weintraub also served five years as the county attorney for Gwinnet and three years as its assistant county attorney.
Sheridan has practiced law for 11 years in DeKalb County and is a partner at the law firm Davis & Sheridan, LLC.
“These are the two best qualified people,” Lary said. “These attorneys would serve the city best as judges. They have been working in the DeKalb County for years.”
