Court of Appeals - Clerk of Court - Minute Books
Scope and Contents
This series consists of bound volumes containing the minutes of decisions rendered in cases coming before the Georgia Court of Appeals. The minutes contain: (1) date of hearing, (2) judges presiding, (3) name of appellant and appellee, (4) court and county case is originally from, (5) judgment rendered on the case and reason, (6) judges consenting or dissenting, and (7) court costs. Generally, the cases come to the Court of Appeals on a writ of error from the Superior Court or City Court of the various counties of Georgia. Such cases involve decisions which call for: (1) dismissal of case for want of prosecution, (2) motion for a new trial, and (3) reversal of case because of court error in overruling and denying the petition for certiorari or because the original court erred in denying a new trial or to simply let stand the judgment of the original court. Later volumes have listed the various divisions with the orders, arguments and judgments listed under each. Also included are the admitting and licensing of new attorneys to the Bar of the Court. For additional materials relating to Court of Appeals cases, please see Series 5 and Series 7 through 11 of this sub-group.
