Legal and legislative materials, 1976-1990
Boxes 1 - 13, AV1

Scope and Content Note

This series consists of materials pertaining to court cases, legislation, and research on legal matters from 1976-1990. The court records trace legal cases from their beginnings in Superior Courts of DeKalb, Emmanuel, and Fulton Counties, to hearings in the Supreme Court of Georgia as well as cases tried in the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and United States District Court Northern District of Georgia. Legislative records contain bills and resolutions including A resolution adopting the Presidential Park Plan as proposed by Mayor Andrew Young and Georgia House Bills 1361 that created a state commission on the condemnation of public property and 1713 that established the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site. In addition, there are many research files related to the legal fights that contain materials on contracts with Arapaho Construction Inc. and the Shepherd Construction company, guidance materials, depositions, and sworn statements. There are many research files that contain materials on Marvin Arrington, Council of Environmental Quality, and the Atlanta Regional Commission.

Arrangement Note

Arranged in alphabetical order.

Processing Note

Legal documents include only court records. Research related to a particular court cases was removed and filed under the research heading. Most of the research materials were already filed separately. Due to the interconnected topics of the cases, research files could not decidedly be connected to individual cases.
