Billy Newcomb secured pre-discovery dismissal of his appraiser client from a lawsuit in which a bank alleged breach of contract, negligence and fraud arising out of a series of appraisals performed by the appraiser. Billy argued that the court did not have personal jurisdiction over the North Carolina-based appraiser under Georgia’s long-arm statute. The court agreed and granted the appraiser’s motion to dismiss.
