More legal wrangling could delay decision in lawsuit against Augusta Commission

The ruling regarding commissioners’ right to abstain from voting was expected this week.

Now, attorneys for commissioners who support abstaining issued a brief citing a case from the Georgia Supreme Court saying that a judge cannot issue advisory opinions.

However, attorneys supporting Woody Merry's claims that abstaining is illegal say that that ruling does not apply in this case.
