S13A0137 Pike County et al. v. Callaway-Ingram

This case began when the chief magistrate of Pike County resigned after the GBI began investigating allegations of wrongdoing. The superior court judges appointed Marcia Callaway-Ingram to serve the remainder of the term. The county claims that, at that time, Ingram negotiated a lower salary to allow her wrap up her private practice. Ingram claims that the agreement was only temporary until she began her full-time service as a judge. The county never increased her salary to the amount paid to the prior magistrate and Ingram sued to force the county to pay her back salary and to stop any underfunding of the magistrate court. The trial court ruled in Ingram’s favor on all claims and the county appealed.

The case was heard on January 7, 2013.
