Georgia Lawmakers Sue Carl Malamud For Publishing Georgia Law

Jul 26

TechDirt reports that the state of Georgia is unhappy enough with Carl Malamud for publishing the state’s own laws that it’s sued Malamud for doing so. From the article:

The specific issue here is that while the basic Georgia legal code is available to the public, the state charges a lot of money for the “Official Code of Georgia Annotated.” The distinction here is fairly important — but it’s worth noting that the courts will regularly rely on the annotations in the official code, which more or less makes them a part of the law itself.

The article uses the word “ridiculous” only 10 times; they’re taking it easy on the poor legislators.
