The Georgia Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society has announced that the Georgia Resource Center, along with retired Judge Horace T. Ward of the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, will receive the 2013 Legal Legends Award on May 15, 2013, at the Georgia State Bar Building.  In notifying the Center of the award, Sara Toering of the Georgia Lawyer Chapter wrote: "The work of your team at the Georgia Resource Center on behalf of those on death row in Georgia exemplifies the ACS mission.  We recognize your remarkable commitment and tenacity in fighting for the lives of those men on Georgia's death row who make the headlines (Mr. Davis, Mr. Hill) and those who do not.  We are humbled by the excellence achieved by all the members of your team--every investigator, intern, attorney and volunteer."
