Savannah Council to consider options after $12 million award against city | savannahnow.com

The Savannah City Council will meet to discuss the city’s options today after losing a lawsuit last week that could cost the city $12 million.

Mayor Edna Jackson and the aldermen are expected to discuss the case behind closed doors during the 3 p.m. work session at City Hall, said spokesman Bret Bell.

Bell said he was not sure whether a public vote would be taken.

On Monday, Jackson said the city was not sure whether it would appeal after a Chatham County Superior Court jury awarded $12 million to Shanta Greene on Aug. 21 after day-long deliberations in the nine-day trial.

They first needed to seek legal council [sic] from the city attorneys, she said.
