Survey Article


The most significant development in Georgia evidence law during the survey period, as in the past two survey periods, was the continued effort to adopt a new Georgia evidence code based upon the Federal Rules of Evidence. The State Bar of Georgia is firmly committed to the adoption of the Georgia Rules of Evidence and has vigorously lobbied for the proposed rules in each of the past two sessions of the Georgia General Assembly. Although no organized opposition has arisen to the proposed rules, the rules have yet to be adopted. In the 1991 session of the General Assembly, as in the 1990 session, the rules were approved by the Senate, but bogged down in the House Judiciary Committee for the remainder of the session. The rules will carry over to the 1992 session.
