Four Ga. DAs sue to block state’s new ‘rouge prosecutors’ law


Four Georgia district attorneys filed a lawsuit Wednesday challenging a new law lauded by Gov. Brian Kemp as having the power to punish what he has called “rogue prosecutors.” DeKalb County’s Sherry Boston said that the Prosecuting Attorneys Qualifications Commission is an assault on democracy and those who exercise their right to vote. The opponents of the new law said they will not back down from “its harmful policies.”  In addition to Boston, the DAs in Cobb County, Butts County, and Augusta are listed as plaintiffs. All are Democrats except the Butts County prosecutor.
