LOWNDES CO., GA (WALB) - The Georgia State Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Lowndes County in its case versus Deep South Sanitation.
The county sued Deep South Sanitation in 2013, saying the small private company did not have a right to collect trash in the county's unincorporated areas because the county had already entered into an agreement with Advanced Disposal.
But Deep South's attorney, Rob Plumb, said Monday afternoon that he believes the court did not consider the fact that the county's stopping Deep South from operating would violate the business owner's rights of protected property.
"The court declined to rule on that, saying that the trial court didn't address it. But, I don't think that's correct. We'll be filing a motion for reconsideration on that issue," Plumb explained.
Plumb has 10 days to file that motion. Deep South will continue to operate for now though, as a formal injunction against Deep South had not been issued as of Monday night.
