Bickerstaff v. SunTrust
(Ga., filed May 15, 2019): Arguing that jury-trial waivers are enforceable in Georgia. Also arguing that the court should clarify the law of severability and hold that courts should preserve and enforce promises that are distinct, rather than taking an approach to severability that erases substantial parts of the parties’ agreement by nullifying distinct provisions that can operate independently.
