The Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, which represents the plaintiffs bar for civil litigation, released an “open letter” reassuring Georgia colleges and high schools that their athletic programs are immune from liability for lawsuits asserting claims over exposure to COVID-19, thanks to legislation passed earlier this year.

In Georgia, these concerns are unfounded,” said the letter released Friday, and signed by GTLA President Lyle Warshauer and Daniel Snipes, the immediate past-president.
