Court of Appeals of Georgia.



Decided: December 29, 2022

Ben C. Brodhead III, Ashley Brooke Fournet, Atlanta, Darrell Hinson, Decatur, John Wesley Ingram Nichols, Michael Brian Terry, Atlanta, for Appellant. Joseph Robb Cruser, Laurie Webb Daniel, Atlanta, Raymond Russell Grant II, Matthew D. Friedlander, Atlanta, for Appellee.

In Junior v. Graham,1 this Court affirmed the trial court's denial of the appellant's motion for attorney fees under OCGA § 9-11-68. The appellant appealed the decision to the Supreme Court of Georgia, which reversed our judgment and remanded the case to this Court “with direction to remand the case to the trial court for reconsideration of [the appellant's] motion for attorney fees and expenses under OCGA § 9-11-68 (b) (2) consistent with this opinion.”2 We therefore vacate our earlier opinion and adopt the Supreme Court's opinion as our own.

Judgment reversed and case remanded with direction.


1.   357 Ga. App. 815, 849 S.E.2d 536 (2020).

2.   Junior v. Graham, 313 Ga. 420, 429 (2) (c), 870 S.E.2d 378 (2022).

Doyle, Presiding Judge.

McFadden, P. J., and Hodges, J., concur.
