The Georgia Supreme Court is considering a case that could have big implications for private college police forces across the state. In the case, a young woman is suing campus police at Agnes Scott, a private women’s college in Decatur, for false arrest, among other things. The Georgia Court of Appeals determined that the privately hired officers are immune because they were functioning as agents of the state, like sheriff's deputies or state troopers.
Out of Tuesday elections, there will be a runoff for one statewide race -- a seat on Georgia’s Supreme Court. The runoff is scheduled for November 30th. Incumbent David Nahmias will face what some might say is a little-known challenger -- who did little to no campaigning.
