DISTRICT ATTORNEY SHERRY BOSTON AND PUBLIC RIGHTS PROJECT RESPOND TO RULING DENYING MOTION FOR PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION
Friday, September 29, 2023
Atlanta, Ga.- This morning, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Paige Reese Whitaker issued an order denying the motion filed August 24 for an interlocutory injunction to prevent the Prosecuting Attorneys Qualifications Commission from disciplining or removing prosecutors while a challenge to Senate Bill 92 makes its way through the legal process.
“While we are disappointed that our motion was denied, this is just the beginning of what we expect will be a long legal battle. We look forward to presenting our full arguments against this dangerous and undemocratic law. We intend to continue our fight for prosecutorial independence and the voters who elected us all the way to the Georgia Supreme Court,” said DeKalb County District Attorney Sherry Boston.
"We disagree with today’s decision, and we knew there would be hurdles to overcome in protecting the will of Georgia voters. This ruling limits the ability of elected district attorneys to promote justice and create safer communities. We will continue our litigation against this anti-democratic commission and remain confident that ultimately SB 92 will be ruled unconstitutional,” said Josh Rosenthal, Legal Director of Public Rights Project.
