HOWARD v. SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART & DESIGN, INC. et al.
S89A0433.
WELTNER, Justice.
A newspaper reporter refused to answer certain questions propounded to her during a deposition taken in the course of civil litigation. Her refusal was based upon her assertion of a purported "qualified reporter's privilege."
The trial court held: "Georgia has no statutory qualified reporter's privilege. . . . [She] has no qualified reporter's privilege under the law of this state."
This holding was correct. Vaughn v. State, 259 Ga. 325 (381 SE2d 30) (1989).
