ATLANTA, GA - Attorney General Chris Carr today announced that Cobb County Assistant District Attorney (ADA) Hannah Palmquist has been hired to lead the Georgia Department of Law’s newly-created Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit – effective July 1, 2019.
ATLANTA, GA - Attorney General Chris Carr today announced that Georgia has secured an agreement to obtain $4,171,314.43 in debt relief for 471 former ITT Tech students in Georgia as part of a multistate settlement. Together, attorneys general from 43 states and the District of Columbia participated in this multistate settlement. Nationally, the settlement will result in debt relief of more than $168 million for 18,664 former ITT students. The settlement is with Student CU Connect CUSO, LLC (“CUSO”), which offered loans to finance students’ tuition at ITT Tech, the failed for-profit college. ITT filed bankruptcy in 2016 amid investigations by state attorneys general and following action by the U.S. Department of Education to restrict ITT’s access to federal student aid. The CUSO loan program originated approximately $189 million in student loans to ITT students between 2009 and 2011.
ATLANTA, GA - Today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the presence of a World War I memorial cross on public land in Maryland does not violate the Establishment Clause, and that in fact, destroying the nearly century-old memorial “would not be neutral and would not further the ideals of respect and tolerance embodied in the First Amendment.” This ruling impacts monuments all across the nation – including a 12-foot cross dedicated to a messenger who fell while delivering a message between Union generals found along the trail of the Chickamauga Battlefield in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, and a stone cross honoring Georgia’s own World War I veterans that sits on a median between two streets in Augusta, Georgia.
