Georgia Governor Brian Kemp must testify before a grand jury investigating former President Donald Trump’s actions after his 2020 loss to Joe Biden, but not until after he faces his own election later this year, a Fulton County Superior Court judge ruled.

Judge Robert McBurney on Monday rejected a claim by Kemp’s attorneys that he was immune as governor from having to testify before a special purpose grand jury convened by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. The judge said Kemp’s immunity applies only to civil cases, not criminal ones.
