GYLA protected the interests of a juvenile who had been sexually harassed in the public area. Zugdidi District Court found the fact of sexual harassment of a minor and fined the responsible person 600 GEL. According to the court, for the purposes of the article on sexual harassment, "any place where any person has the right to be or an opportunity to obtain this right shall be considered a public place."

The Judgment of the Zugdidi District Court was appealed to the Kutaisi Court of Appeals by the person prosecuted for the administrative offence; however, the Court of Appeals also shared the factual and legal substantiation set forth in the judgment of the Court of First Instance and left the decision unchanged. 

GYLA litigated this case with the support of USAID/PROLoG.
