Bibb County attorney Virgil Adams is pleased, but not surprised by a ruling that came from the state Supreme Court today, keeping hundreds of yards, and possibly millions of dollars of revenue in Bibb County.
It reverses a previous decision from a Fulton County judge, moving the border that divides Bibb and Monroe Counties further south.
Bibb County attorney Virgil Adams says Monday's decision by the state supreme court has been a long time coming and literally a century in the making.
"We were not invited to the party, so we did not get the opportunity to present evidence to the trial court that this survey was wrong," Adams said.
In January of 2013, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Kelly Lee ruled to move the boundary lines between Bibb and Monroe in a way that would give Monroe an area worth millions, according to Bibb attorney Virgil Adams.
