Survey Article


The decisions rendered by the Georgia Supreme Court and Georgia Court of Appeals during this one-year survey period included a small opening in lender liability, a minimalist view of the requirements of evidence as it pertains to the law of fraud, an extensive discussion of the law of damages as it applies to construction contracts, and a harsh result because of failure to comply with the requirements of the mechanic's and materialmen's lien statute. This Article addresses these significant movements in the law and some of the reaffirmations of existing law in the construction field between June 1, 1998, and May 31, 1999.
