    Google sovereign immunity
    Generally speaking it is the doctrine that the sovereign or state cannot commit a legal wrong and is immune from civil suit or criminal prosecution; hence the saying, the king (or queen) can do no wrong. In many cases, the government has waived this immunity to allow for suits; in some cases, an individual, such as an attorney general, may technically appear as defendant on the state's behalf.

    dr. who -

    What you will need to do to correct the misinformation on your criminal history record is contact the appropriate law enforcement agency or criminal justice agency that handled your case. This agency must submit a written request to the Georgia Crime Information Center, a part of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, to have changes made to your record.

    The agency must submit, on their official letterhead, your full name, your date of birth, your social security number, your race, your sex, your date of arrest, or your state identification number (SID) and date of arrest, or your Offender Tracking Number (OTN) for your date of arrest - and this information needs to be sent along with the requested changes in your record.

    But you are unable to make changes to your criminal history record on your own. You need the proper documentation submitted by the proper agency.

    For more information on making corrections, you can call the Georgia Crime Information Center's Helpline at 404-244-2639.

    There is no defamation action you can bring against the state in the situation you have described here. Sorry.

    Post still not satisfied

    In law, defamation (also called calumny, libel, slander, and vilification) is the communication of a statement that makes a false claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, government or nation a negative image

    I know, dr. who, that the information revealed in your criminal history record is false and that your reputation may have been injured by this misinformation. That is why it is important that you contact the proper authorities and have the information corrected.

    Although it may not seem right, not all defamatory communications can result in a defamation action. That is just the reality. You cannot bring a defamation action against the state of Georgia. Sorry.


    Okay, I just read your last post. You are right that eight years is much too long to wait for a correction to be made and I can understand how frustrating it must have been to lose employment due to erroneous information showing up on your records. If, after working so long on making changes, it looks like corrections are finally being made, that, at least, is positive. Hopefully the changes once made will eliminate hiring problems in the future.

    You, however, can STILL not sue Georgia for this.

    You may

    sue Pro se for defamation or false imprisonment against the state through preemptive writ of mandamus, compiled with subpoenas for all involved agents, set to show an exact method of fact by the state for strict liability if the offense is willful.

    If everyone on here is too scared to take on the state then I fear for this country.
