Appellate review

Topic under: Appellate Decisions

The Supreme Court of Georgia considered claims regarding the Child Protective Services Information System (the Act) and determined that (1) the child sex abuse offender whose name was added to the Child Abuse Registry failed to show the deprivation of a liberty or property interest based on injury to his reputation and impact on future job prospects; (2) the Act is not unconstitutional as applied to the offender; (3) the Act is civil, not punitive or quasi-criminal; (4) the Act does not violate the separation of powers doctrine; (5) the ALJ’s decision that the abuser committed an act of child sex abuse was supported by evidence.
