An Atlanta judge voided the contract awarded by the state for construction of a parkway to Jimmy Carter's presidential library and permanently enjoined the contractor from continuing the work. Superior Court Judge Osgood Williams, ruling on a suit filed by parkway opponents, said the contract was awarded improperly to Shepherd Construction Co. by the state Department of Transportation last fall. The road was designed to connect Carter's planned library complex with downtown Atlanta.
