"Stubborn Litigiousness"

A law firm that had consisted of two equal partners ended in bad feelings and litigation. Among the claims that each had brought against the other were charges of "stubborn litigiousness." The Georgia Supreme Court held that the trial court had properly appointed a receiver to deal with the ongoing dispute. Specifically, the receiver will collect fees due to the former firm and determine distributions. The court noted disputed evidence that one of the partners had engaged in improper conduct during the course of the partnership and found it unnecessary to resolve that dispute in its disposition of this appeal.
