    Judge Love attended Boston College Law School and graduated from  there in 2004. After law school, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia where he  began his legal career. In 2005, Judge Love was appointed by Atlanta  Mayor Shirley Franklin to serve as a Hearing Officer for the Taxicabs  and Vehicles for Hire Board, which heard violations brought against  vehicles for hire in the City of Atlanta. A year later, in 2006, Mayor  Franklin appointed him as a Procurement Appeals Hearing Officer, where  he was responsible for hearing and adjudicating the appeals of  insidiously and business that had been denied a right to do business  with the City of Atlanta.
