You can sue anyone if you believe you have a case. Your best bet is to click the link above to find a lawyer to consult. Having said that, both Landlords and Tenants have duties and rights under the lease contract and under GA law. A LL has a duty to repair and maintain the property in a livable condition. If you move out without their permission, they can sue you and possibly retain your security deposit. However, you may have a good case against them. LLs must follow the law and, if not, then you may be able to obtain a judgment against them which could include punitive damages as well. You are wise to take video and photos which are date-stamped as potential evidence in court. You should also record any phone calls or conversations to which you are a party. Keep a record of your reports/complaints. I would actually advise you to keep some samples as well. Speak with a lawyer about taking your case. Best wishes.
