Mercer Law Review, Vol. 33, No. 1 (Fall 1981), pp. 275-305


This survey covers only a handful of the hundreds of decisions rendered last year by the Georgia appellate courts on points of trial practice and procedure. Those decisions selected were chosen because they resolved significant new issues or illustrated important principles of civil procedure. Using the format established in the past, the survey begins with cases dealing with personal jurisdiction, subject-matter jurisdiction, and venue, followed by cases concerned with the Civil Practice Act arranged under each section in numerical order.
