Georgia Judge Strikes Down Offer of Judgment Rule

After barely seven months on the books, Gwinnett County Superior Court Judge Michael C. Clark has struck down Georgia's offer of judgment reform statute (O.C.G.A. 9-11-68), reasoning that it is unconstitutional under the Georgia State Constitution for restricting the access of individual litigants to the courts. (Fulton County Daily Report, Sept 27, 2005 (sub); Decision).

I plan on posting a longer analysis of the decision tomorrow.
