Former MD Anderson Fellow Anna Arganashvili (LL.M. ’20) Wins First Quarantine Lawsuit in Republic of Georgia

According to JAM news, a Tbilisi city court granted the claim of Georgian citizen Anna Arganashvili, in which she demanded transfer from quarantine to self-isolation, since the quarantine conditions were unbearable for her 11-year-old child. This is the first time during the pandemic that someone in Georgia appealed to the court system because of quarantine conditions. The case became a precedent – Irakli Chikovani, the prime minister’s press speaker, says that from now on, the issue of putting minors in quarantine will be decided on an individual basis.

Anna Arganashivili is a human rights activist. She was a Fulbright student in the LL.M. Program at The University of Texas School Law in the academic  year 2019-2020. Additionally, she served as an MD Anderson Fellow in the Institute for Transnational Law, where her research focused on violence against women with disabilities.
