A judge has handed Monroe County a victory in a border dispute with neighboring Bibb County.
The Telegraph newspaper reports a Fulton County judge on Wednesday ordered Secretary of State Brian Kemp to set the Bibb-Monroe county border south of where it's currently marked.
The judge ordered Kemp to use a controversial 2009 survey he has rejected multiple times. The newspaper reports Monroe County first appealed Kemp's rejection to the secretary of state himself, filed an unsuccessful lawsuit in Fulton County, and then filed another suit in Fulton County that resulted in the Wednesday decision.
The case pitted Monroe County against Kemp's office. Bibb County officials said after the ruling they weren't aware of the case, but they plan to try to intervene before a final order is issued.
