The Supreme Court of Georgia held oral arguments at Savannah Law School on Thursday, April 14 at 2:00 p.m. Court was held in the 4th floor courtroom of the new law school, which graduated its first class of law students last year and is located at 516 Drayton Street in Savannah.
The court heard appeals in two cases – one criminal and one civil. In the first case, state prosecutors appealed a Georgia Court of Appeals ruling that upheld a Bryan County superior court’s decision transferring to juvenile court the case of a 16-year-old who was arrested for aggravated sexual battery. The appeal from the second case stems from a dispute between the Chatham County Board of Commissioners and the Clerk of Superior Court over whether in addition to state cost of living increases, the court clerk is also entitled to local cost of living increases.
Following oral arguments, Savannah Law School invited all attendees to join them at a 5:00 p.m. building dedication ceremony and reception celebrating the recent facility renovations.
