Default Court Tells Georgia It Canít Charge People to Read the Law

Court Tells Georgia It Canít Charge People to Read the Law

In a victory for the people of Georgia, a federal appeals court ruled on Friday that the state can no longer charge individuals hundreds of dollars to see the laws that govern them....

...For decades, Georgia ignored this reality. Rather than make the text of the law freely available, the state pay-walled access to the statutes, court opinions, and annotations that make up its official law.


How did Georgia get away with charging to see the state's statutes, court opinions, etc For Decades ?? I sure don't understand why someone, why most Everyone didn't revolt over this years ago

And now Georgians are being denied voting access because the wanna-be governor is also the Secretary of State and can decide who gets to vote and who doesn't. Fine, fine state (/s).
You'll know you've created God in your own image when He hates all the people you do.
