MARIETTA — The Cobb County District Attorney’s Office is awaiting a Georgia Supreme Court decision on whether to uphold an appeals court ruling related to a laundry list of charges against former Cobb EMC CEO Dwight Brown.
They are also waiting to find out if Brown’s attorneys with Barnes Law Group LLC in Marietta will be appealing a late-June ruling related to a second indictment filed by the district attorney’s office.
The grand jury handed down a 31-count indictment against Brown, accusing him of racketeering, fraud and theft of assets in January 2011.
Two months later, Cobb County Superior Court Judge Robert Flournoy threw out Brown’s indictment on grounds that it wasn’t delivered in open court, but then-Cobb District Attorney Pat Head filed an appeal.
Judges with the Georgia Court of Appeals agreed with Flournoy’s original decision, but the local district attorney’s office appealed that decision as well.
Vic Reynolds, who took the helm at the local district attorney’s office in January, said the Georgia Supreme Court should make a decision on the first indictment sometime over the summer.
