Can Anyone Hold the Board of Regents Accountable? | Flagpole

The Georgia Court of Appeals, however, handed down a broad ruling that sovereign immunity barred Tricoli from pursuing his breach of contract case for violation of Regents policy, even if Wrigley and Huckaby had committed crimes of fraud in the process.

Gov. Brian Kemp’s push to make Sonny Perdue chancellor of the University System of Georgia (see the May 12 issue of Flagpole) came along just in time to highlight a legal question that has been plaguing the USG for years—whether the system can be held accountable for violating the Board of Regen...

Ga. Needs a Better Process for Compensating the Wrongfully Convicted | Daily Report

Georgia has no method in place for compensating the wrongfully convicted. Nor is it generally possible to sue simply for having been wrongfully convicted, because prosecutors, judges and investigators are largely immune from suits that challenge their discretion. That leaves, as a last resort, going to the Georgia General Assembly and asking them to pass a law in the name of your client.

If we want to be a state where justice is done, we must do more than simply release the wrongfully convicted, an appellate lawyer writes.

THEY HAVE NO VOICE COVID-19 COMMENTS 02.01.21 For today, 02/01/21, GDC reports that there are 12 newly confirmed inmate cases of Covid-19, an increase from 3325 to 3337. Because of discrepancies, THNV will verify the data over the next 2 days. There are 12 newly confirmed cases of Covid-19. Those 12 newly confirmed cases are Johnson SP 1, Macon TC 1, Paulding CP 1, and Treutlen PDC 9. The total confirmed cases of Covid-19 at each of those facilities are as follows: Johnson SP 93, Macon TC 10, Paulding CP 5, and Treutlen PDC 64.

I mentioned a couple of days ago that THEY HAVE NO VOICE will be collaborating with SCHR on certain things. Well this one is important! Sarah Geraghty (one of my personal heroes) sent this, and it is potentially impactful for many people here in GA. If this applies to you or to your loved one, you may wish to contact the Southern Center. Contact info is at the bottom of the letter. In addition, if you have friends to whom this might apply, you may want to pass it along to them or even post it on your timeline. Thanks in advance. Dear friends: The Southern Center for Human Rights and the ACLU of Georgia are looking to file a lawsuit challenging the felony disenfranchisement of U.S. citizens, specifically those convicted of certain drug offenses in Georgia. The mass disenfranchisement of U.S. citizens formerly convicted of a “felony involving moral turpitude” targets communities of color and resulted in over 266,000 U.S. citizens unable to vote in the 2018 election. We would like to speak with anyone (or anyone you know) who meet the following criteria: (1) person was convicted of felony drug possession (can be any prohibited substance), but not sale or possession with intent; (2) person is currently on probation or parole for that drug possession conviction; (3) person was not sentenced under the First Offender Act or conditional discharge statute; (4) person did not plead nolo contendre to the offense; (5) person lives in Georgia and is otherwise eligible to vote here. If you know anyone who fits these criteria and might be willing to speak to us, we’d be very grateful to be in touch, and feel free to pass along contact information if that would be easiest. No U.S. citizen should lose their sacred right to vote, especially under a felon disenfranchisement law that was only added to the Georgia Constitution after the Fifteenth Amendment required the state to let Black people vote. Thank you for fighting alongside us for our democracy.
