OCGA 9-3-30 Interpretation

Webster v. Snapping Shoals Elec. Membership Corp., 176 Ga. App. 265, 267 (1) (b) (335 SE2d 637) (1985) addressed a landowner's right to pursue a trespass action against an electric membership corporation. In that case, the Court concluded that the action, which was brought more than four years after the plaintiff purchased the property, was time-barred by the four-year statute of limitation in OCGA 9-3-30, which provides that "all actions for trespass upon or damage to realty shall be brought within four years after the right of action accrues."
