You would need to sit down with an attorney to discuss what your best course of action would be based upon what has happened to date and what your goals are.

In state or superior courts in GA, you can unilaterally dismiss less than all of the defendants without prejudice at just about anytime until judgment or verdict is entered. In federal court, you can unilaterally dismiss less than all defendants without prejudice if they've not already answered the complaint or appeared in the case. If they have already answered, you can only dismiss defendants by stipulation or with the court's approval.
