Joe Kingma represented a CPA firm hired by a department of the State of Georgia to review records from a state contractor. Based on that review, the contractor was stricken from the program and was ordered to refund fees already received. The contractor sued the CPA in the Superior Court of Dekalb County. On November 5, 2012, the trial court granted Carlock Copeland’s motion to dismiss. This result may be appealed, so watch this space for further developments.
