A motions hearing last week saw attorneys for both the city of Dawsonville and Mayor James Grogan issue arguments before the judge who will decide if Grogan’s appeal of a May 15 vote by council to remove him from office should be dismissed and if he should continue to remain in his position. The city filed a motion June 29 to dismiss the case filed by Grogan, in which he sought direct appeal and a new trial and requested a jury trial. Dana Miles, city attorney, argued at the Aug. 2 hearing that Grogan’s appeal for a new trial was not the correct method of appeal as he filed de novo, for a new trial, as opposed to by certiorari, by review.
