Tuesday morning, Bibb County attorney Virgil Adams filed a brief in Georgia Supreme Court, in part, asking that the two counties and Secretary of State, Brian Kemp return to the courtroom.

This response comes after a Fulton County Superior Court Judge ruled earlier this year in favor of Monroe which ultimately shifts the lines down, and brings millions of taxpayer dollars into the northern county.

Adams says the brief is a response to that hearing which Bibb County was not a party in.

“In the brief we addressed the issue of us, Bibb County not being notified of the hearing, not being allowed to intervene in the hearing,” said Adams.

Adams says he asked to present the county’s side in court in September.

Monroe County has 20 days to respond.
