Appellate review

Topic under: Appellate Decisions

In this case regarding the Child Abuse Registry, the Supreme Court of Georgia remanded to the superior court with direction to dismiss and explained that (1) the superior court erred by addressing the constitutionality of the Child Abuse Registry statutes and rules when the plaintiffs (appellees) were required to exhaust the administrative process ; (2) sovereign immunity barred plaintiffs’ suit against the State and its employees in their official capacities; and (3) plaintiffs’ suit against the employees in their individual capacities was not barred by sovereign immunity, so those claims remained.
