Multiple judges in Georgia within the last decade have been accused of misconduct, many in cases of a sexual nature, according to a list compiled by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in 2010. 

“We do not want our judges harassing litigants or jurors, or presiding over cases when one of the lawyers is a sexual partner of the judge,” said Stephen Bright, president and senior council at the Southern Center for Human Rights.

When is a $60,000 tab for one person’s medication considered a bargain for Georgia taxpayers?

When it goes to pay for a hepatitis C cure, state health officials told a group of Georgia lawmakers Tuesday.

Hepatitis C used to be considered a death sentence. Now, new drug treatments can cure nearly 100 percent of those infected. But they're expensive — up to $90,000 at a retail pharmacy, or a discounted rate of just $60,000 for health plans.
