O.C.G.A. 51-1-7 (2010)
51-1-7. When infraction of public duty gives cause of action to individual


Injury suffered in common with the community, though to a greater extent, will not give a right of action to an individual for the infraction of some public duty. In order for an individual to have such a right of action, there must be some special damage to him, in which the public has not participated.
