Georgia homeowners win round in court fight vs. hospital development

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, October 28, 2008

Cobb County, GA, residents who sued to stop the development of a large church and small hospital near Lake Allatoona have won an important procedural battle. The Georgia Supreme Court's unanimous ruling overturns a decision by a Cobb Superior Court judge that dismissed a lawsuit contesting plans for a 65-acre tract of land. WellStar Health System proposes building doctors' offices, a diagnostic and testing center, and, eventually, a hospital on the site.
