During its first session of oral arguments in 2022, the Supreme Court of Georgia heard arguments over whether a landowner obtained a vested right to develop a proposed Forsyth County subdivision with lot sizes later barred by a county zoning moratorium.

Appellants argued a 2016 conversation between a county planning director and a land developer confirmed that written code at the time would allow for the creation of 9,000-square-foot lots, as planned by the developer, but that the government official provided no assurances against future zoning changes.
