The Supreme Court of Georgia stopped in Ellijay on October 16 to hear two cases in Georgia's Apple Capital.  The Court was invited by Chief Judge Brenda S. Weaver, Appalachian Judicial Circuit, to travel to Ellijay so that citizens in north Georgia would have a first-hand view of the important work of the Supreme Court of Georgia.  Among those who witnessed the oral arguments were high school students from Fannin, Gilmer, and Pickens counties, the three counties that constitute the Appalachian Judicial Circuit.
