Coweta County Opposes 60-day Case in GA Supreme Court

The Coweta County attorney, on behalf of the Coweta County probate judge, has filed a brief in the Supreme Court of Georgia, opposing a GCO member’s request for the high court to review a decision of the Court of Appeals of Georgia. The Court of Appeals ruled that, contrary to the plain language of the GFL licensing statute, probate judges may wait indefinitely for a “notification” from local law enforcement that background checks have been performed. Inexplicably, the Court also ruled that the results of the background checks need not be reported to probate judges at all if no derogatory information is found.
