ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia's Supreme Court said it plans to wade into a fight over a seat on its bench. But an order issued Monday says some of the high court justices have recused themselves and substitute judges will sit in. The fight stems from a decision by the secretary of state to cancel a scheduled election for Justice Keith Blackwell's seat on the state Supreme Court after Blackwell announced his intention to resign in November and the governor said he planned to fill the seat by appointment. That decision was challenged by two people who had planned to run against Blackwell.
