Title 50, Chapter 21, Section 23
(a) The state waives its sovereign immunity for the torts of state
officers and employees while acting within the scope of their
official duties or employment and shall be liable for such torts in
the same manner as a private individual or entity would be liable
under like circumstances; provided, however, that the state's
sovereign immunity is waived subject to all exceptions and
limitations set forth in this article. The state shall have no
liability for losses resulting from conduct on the part of state
officers or employees which was not within the scope of their
official duties or employment.
(b) The state waives its sovereign immunity only to the extent and
in the manner provided in this article and only with respect to
actions brought in the courts of the State of Georgia. The state
does not waive any immunity with respect to actions brought in the
courts of the United States.
