As district attorney, he requested a search of a physician’s phone records, against the physician—who questioned certain billing practices at the local hospital Phoebe Putney. Hodges was personally sued, successfully, in the same District Court in Albany, but because the case finally impinged on “absolute immunity for grand jurors” the District Court decision went all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States where it was then overturned.
In 2013, Hodges was honored by the State Bar of Georgia’s Committee to Promote Inclusion in the Profession with the Commitment to Equality Award. Hodges was selected for the honor because of “his contributions to the advancement of diversity, including his prior service as District Attorney for the Dougherty Judicial Circuit, hiring as his chief assistant the African American prosecutor who later became his successor. During his three terms, Hodges had one of the most proportionately diverse offices in the state and, in many instances, helped his minority assistants move on to become federal prosecutors or secure positions in private practice. As district attorney, he maintained an internship program with Albany State University, one of Georgia’s historical black universities.”
In 2013, Hodges was elected by Georgia’s attorneys to serve on the Executive Committee of the State Bar of Georgia. Hodges currently serves on the Board of Governors for the State Bar of Georgia, and multiple committees, including the Advisory Committee on Legislation. He was sworn in as President of the State Bar of Georgia in June 2018.
In January 2011, Hodges joined the Atlanta law firm Rafuse Hill & Hodges, LLP as a partner in the litigation division. Rafuse Hill & Hodges had a national litigation practice focusing on employment, civil rights, products liability and commercial disputes.
In August 2009, Candidate Hodges received the endorsement of Andrew Young, former Mayor of Atlanta and United States Ambassador to the United Nations under President Jimmy Carter. Young praised Hodges for “his commitment to equal rights and the fair application of justice during his years of service in Albany.”
During his career as attorney and District Attorney for Dougherty County, Hodges has argued in front of the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court. Hodges was instrumental in the 2002 prosecution of Sidney Dorsey, a former DeKalb County Sheriff who ordered the assassination of his successor, Derwin Brown. Ultimately, Dorsey was found guilty on eleven counts, including murder and racketeering.
