This Bill provided for a “loser pays” provision that the party losing on a motion to dismiss would be assessed the prevailing party’s attorney fees. The Bill also provides for a stay of discovery when a motion to dismiss is filed to ensure that the costly discovery process would not begin until the legal merits of a complaint have been tested. This legislation was originally introduced by the Governor to reduce frivolous law suits in Georgia and provide relief to those wrongly sued.
