ATLANTA, GEORGIA — A prominent Georgia lawmaker is abusing an outdated legal loophole regularly to enrich his private legal practice at the expense of justice, according to reports.
In more than 20 criminal cases, Speaker of Georgia State House of Representatives David Ralston asked for 55 continuances, citing the one-hundred-year-old “Legislative Leave Law” in every case, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Ralston is guilty of abusing the state’s antiquated “Legislative Leave Law” to enrich his private law practice by delaying justice in numerous criminal cases, including those involving rape, molestation, aggravated assault, murder, and much more, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
David Shell — a man with a long record of beating up women — was indicted by a grand jury as repeat offender, which could mean up to 20 years in prison for aggravated assault.
But more than four years after his indictment, Shell remains free, because he retained the legal services of Ralston (speaker of the Georgia House.)

Boy Scouts File for Bankruptcy as a Result of Declining Membership and Sexual Abuse Lawsuits
On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, The Boy Scouts of America filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in order to stay running as thousands of sexual abuse claims from former members pile up against the youth organization in the courts.
The organization initiated its bankruptcy proceedings in Delaware on Tuesday morning, per court documents. Consequently, all civil suits filed against the youth organization will be suspended, according to a CNN report.
The organization will likely still have to pay victims throughout the bankruptcy proceedings, but it will not have to go through the arduous jury trial process in certain states.
.“The BSA cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to harm innocent children,” Roger Mosby, the Boy Scouts’ president and chief executive officer, announced in a statement Tuesday.
“While we know nothing can undo the tragic abuse that victims suffered, we believe the Chapter 11 process — with the proposed Trust structure — will provide equitable compensation to all victims while maintaining the BSA’s important mission,” he continued.
Lawyers informed the Post that the Boy Scouts would have to make the bankruptcy go public in order to reach as many victims as possible.
