DeKalb County Superior Court Finds PATH Project Illegal and Orders Construction to Stop

DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Gregory Adams found a mile-long walkway being constructed by PATH between Medlock and Mason Mill parks “illegal” and ordered that the work must stop.  Judge Adams also ruled that DeKalb County did not follow its own permitting procedures by allowing the walkway to stray too close to a stream in violation of its own environmental regulations.

UPDATE:  Judge Adams has extended the stop work order which will likely delay until next spring while a pending appeal of a previous ruling from Judge Adams that DeKalb County had not followed its own procedures awaits a decision from the Georgia Supreme Court.
