Battling Corruption

William M. Windsor, candidate for U.S. House of Representatives, has introduced state legislation designed to reform the legal and judicial process.  These are changes that Windsor says are desperately needed.

The legal systems and judicial systems in Georgia and every state in America must be reformed.  Dishonesty and corruption have stolen the rights of every American.

This is Part 5 of a series of articles that will address the proposed legislation for Georgia.  This proposed legislation makes simple changes to the statutes on Relief from a Judgment or Order.

Judges and dishonest attorneys use a variety of techniques to break the law.  There are a variety of reasons why a party must be given the ability to seek to set aside orders or judgments.  This addition to the statutes simply incorporates the rights afforded litigants in federal courts.

The change to the existing Georgia Code statute is an addition of section 9-2-64:

TITLE 9. CIVIL PRACTICE

CHAPTER 11 - CIVIL PRACTICE ACT

ARTICLE 4. DISMISSAL AND RENEWAL

§ 9-2-64.  Relief from a Judgment or Order

(a) Corrections Based on Clerical Mistakes; Oversights and Omissions. The court may correct a clerical mistake or a mistake arising from oversight or omission whenever one is found in a judgment, order, or other part of the record. The court may do so on motion or on its own, with or without notice. But after an appeal has been docketed in the appellate court and while it is pending, such a mistake may be corrected only with the appellate court's leave.

(b) Grounds for Relief from a Final Judgment, Order, or Proceeding. On motion and just terms, the court may relieve a party or its legal representative from a final judgment, order, or proceeding for the following reasons:

(1) mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable neglect;

(2) newly discovered evidence that, with reasonable diligence, could not have been discovered in time to move for a new trial;

(3) fraud, misrepresentation, or misconduct by an opposing party;

(4) the judgment is void;

(5) the judgment has been satisfied, released, or discharged; it is based on an earlier judgment that has been reversed or vacated; or applying it prospectively is no longer equitable; or

(6) any other reason that justifies relief.

(c) Timing and Effect of the Motion.

(1) Timing. A motion under (b) must be made within a reasonable time—and for reasons (1), (2), and (3) no more than a year after the entry of the judgment or order or the date of the proceeding.

(2) Effect on Finality. The motion does not affect the judgment's finality or suspend its operation.

(d) Other Powers to Grant Relief. This rule does not limit a court's power to:

(1) entertain an independent action to relieve a party from a judgment, order, or proceeding;

(2) grant relief to a defendant who was not personally notified of the action; or

(3) set aside a judgment for fraud on the court.


Notes:  This makes the terms of Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 60 part of Georgia Code.  Litigants must be afforded the ability to set aside orders and judgments that were improperly issued or when facts or circumstances change.
