Supreme Court Denies Further Appeal for Agnes Scott College
The Georgia Supreme Court today DENIED Agnes Scott College’s Petition for Certiorari in the case of Amanda Hartley v. Agnes Scott College, Inc. et al. In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court effectively ended Agnes Scott’s appeal road, and the private college will now have to face justice in a jury trial in Dekalb County. “This has been a long and winding road on appeal,” said Lloyd N. Bell, attorney for Ms. Hartley. “Ms. Hartley is incredibly courageous,” Bell continued. “She is determined to hold Agnes Scott accountable for causing her to be falsely imprisoned, ruining her college career and causing lifelong emotional damage.” The case is expected to go to trial by the end of the year.
