A petition filed by attorneys for Dawsonville Mayor James Grogan earlier this month is the second step in what promises to be a lengthy legal process. As part of the appeal of the city council's decision to remove the mayor from office, attorney Steven Leibel, representing Grogan, filed a petition June 14 to the Superior Court of Dawson County asking for the court to review the council's decision and demanding a trial by jury. The petition also asks that the appellate court refer to the trial court's record but not rely on its judgment.
