On March 21,  2014 attorney Pope Langdale presented a speech entitled Valdosta Victories – A Look Back at Three Important Legal Cases that Shaped the Valdosta-Lowndes County Community at a Georgia Legal History Foundation seminar in Albany, Georgia.  The speech detailed three of the most noteworthy criminal trials that have ever occurred in Valdosta over the last fifty years including: United States v. Eddie Ray Crockett, Jr. and Jewell L. Futch, State of Georgia v. Keller Wilcox, and State of Georgia v. Maurice Cassotta.

The mission of the Georgia Legal History Foundation is to preserve, analyze, and depict the legal history of the State of Georgia, especially that of the Supreme Court of Georgia, and other courts of the State and the Bar, and to disseminate that history for the purposes of educating the public and the legal community.
