Georgia Supreme Court rules against State Senator in Accident Case

State Sen. Cecil Staton did not prevail before the Georgia Supreme Court this week.

The court said Staton, a Republican from Macon, was not entitled to additional coverage ($200,000) in coverage after a truck accident near Rome that broke his leg. Staton contended he should be allowed to “stack” $100,000 policies on three vehicles owned by his company, Smyth & Helwys Publishing, even though only one of the three cars was actually in the crash.
