Judge Doug Pullen's 'Gifts': Records reveal judge directed millions to Mercer and Morehouse, gained recognition

Over the past decade, Superior Court Judge Douglas C. Pullen has quietly become accustomed to doling out huge sums of other people’s money, and at times receiving public recognition as a major philanthropist. He’s approved more than $33.8 million -- substantially more than any other judge in the Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit -- in contributions to dozens of charities, universities and other organizations in Columbus and around the state, according to a review of hundreds of documents provided to the Ledger-Enquirer under the Georgia Open Records Act.
