Legal Notes on Georgia and The South

Court Update

Convictions Affirmed: 2

Not much is new in Georgia.

In the 11th Circuit yesterday, a U.S.C. 1983 case affirms summary judgment for defendants in a case where the jail didn’t properly process bond records.  Plaintiffs were held in jail improperly for weeks or months.  Dismissed on grounds of qualified immunity.  West v. Tillman.

I haven’t had a lot of time to look over the recent 11th circuit opinion on the Fulton County Jail strip search policy.  Hopefully I’ll get to it eventually.
