I just received via email from the Federalist Society a link to a paper titled “The Predictable Unpredictability of the Georgia Supreme Court.”
The paper was prepared by Robert Barker of Powell Goldstien, Holly A. Pierson of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, and W. Ryan Teague of McKenna, Long and Aldridge.
I have not finished reading it, but here’s a tidbit for you:
However, the Georgia Supreme Court’s recent decisions in strategic areas of the law – i.e., tort and strict liability, criminal law, and constitutional protections – provide at least some insight into the majority’s judicial philosophy. This paper examines several of those decisions in order to foster greater dialogue about the proper role of the judiciary and whether the Georgia Supreme Court has respected its limited constitutional role.
Hopefully Erick and/or some of you other barristers will give us your opinion of this document.
