Formal Advisory Opinion Board Issues Formal Advisory Opinion No. 16-3

The second publication of this opinion appeared in the August 2016 issue of the Georgia Bar Journal and was filed with the Supreme Court of Georgia on November 10, 2016. No petition for discretionary review was filed within the 20-day review period, and on December 8, 2016, the Supreme Court of Georgia issued an order declining to review the opinion on its own motion. Accordingly, pursuant to Rule 4-403(d), Formal Advisory Opinion No. 16-3 is an opinion of the Formal Advisory Opinion Board and is binding on the requestor and the State Bar of Georgia, and not on the Supreme Court of Georgia, which shall treat the opinion as persuasive authority only.
