GA - alimony statute challenged
The Moultrie Observer: "A former Moultrie physician is challenging the constitutionality of Georgia’s alimony statue in a hearing before Colquitt County Superior Court Judge Frank Horkan Tuesday.
Dr. Denny Cormier, now practicing in Brunswick, is a pro se litigant in a divorce case in Superior Court and alleges the alimony sections of Georgia’s dissolution of marriage laws infringe upon a Georgian’s rights of privacy, equal protection and due process, he stated in a release to the press. Also, Cormier claims that the state alimony laws violate the ban on involuntary servitude found in both the constitutions of Georgia and the U.S."
