In Hennessy v. Webb, the Georgia Supreme Court held that a public school principal was entitled to governmental immunity from tort liability for alleged negligence in allowing a hazardous condition to exist upon school premises. The court ruled that plaintiffis action was brought against the principal in his official capacity as an agent of the board of education for negligent exercise of his authorized discretion.
