Sanctions Awarded

Three months after the jury’s verdict in Ms. Kalberman’s case, Kim Worth watched a newscast of an interview with the former director of the Georgia Government Transparency and State Finance Commission (formerly, the State Ethics Commission) who reported that she had allegedly been threatened by one of Governor Deal’s staffers during her administration. Ms. Worth filed a Motion for Sanctions against the Office of the Georgia Attorney General and the former director alleging that evidence had been withheld during the pendency of Ms. Kalberman’s action.
