A: In order to prevail on a 9-15-14 claim, you need to be incurring attorney's fees. If you are represented by counsel, you need to discuss whether this is a viable option for you with them. If you are not represented by counsel and believe that the other party has either brought a frivolous claim or is expanding the litigation unnecessarily, you need to consult with an attorney to discuss pursuing a claim pursuant to O.C.G.A. 9-15-14.

A: I agree. And this is a highly disfavored action. If you're already represented you need to talk with your attorney, and if you're not, you should certainly consider consulting with one before you travel down this path.
