Portraits of Judges Russell Hinson, Bob Moon and Richard Holcomb were unveiled in ceremonies at the Courts Building on Wednesday morning.
General Sessions Court Judge Clarence Shattuck noted that the three judges were among 24 to serve in the court in its 70-year history.
Judge Hinson served from 1963 to 1968 when he went on the bench in Criminal Court. Judge Holcomb served for 24 years and Judge Moon for 16.
Judge Shattuck said the three judges had a combined 67 years of judicial service.
Criminal Court Judge Don Poole noted that Judge Hinson was a Marine during World War II and was married 62 years. He and his wife died within three months of one another in 2009.
His daughter, Marjorie Bulloch, of Atlanta was present for the unveiling.
Judge David Bales spoke of Judge Moon as being multi-faceted, including his love of hunting and fishing and antique cars. He noted that he made many contributions to the Boys Club after receiving much help from that group during his youth.
Present for Judge Moon were his widow, Debbie; brother, Mark, and mother, Christine.
Judge Shattuck said Judge Holcomb was both a boxer and cheerleader in school, noting he was "a fighter and an encourager." He said he helped get non-partisan races for General Sessions judges and to have judges run by divisions.
Those present for Judge Holcomb included widow, Karen; daughter, Lora, and son, Rick.
Attorneys Lee Davis and Stan Lanzo were the chief fundraisers for the project.
