§ 9-3-95. Disability of One or More With Joint Right of Action; Effect of Severability

Universal Citation: GA Code § 9-3-95 (2021)

Where there is a joint right of action and one or more of the persons having the right is under any of the disabilities specified in Code Section 9-3-90, the terms of limitation shall not be computed against the joint action until all the disabilities are removed. However, if the action is severable so that each person may bring an action for his own share, those free from disability shall be barred after the running of the applicable statute of limitations, and only the rights of those under disability shall be protected.
