In any successful action to enforce the Act, the court must award attorney fees and reasonable litigation expenses if the court determines that the violation was "without substantial justification" and no special circumstances exist. O.C.G.A. § 50-14-5(b). See, e.g., Slaughter v. Brown, 269 Ga. App. 211, 603 S.E.2d 706 (2004) (lack of bad faith does not support a finding of special circumstances sufficient to decrease the award of litigation costs); Evans Cty. Board of Comm'rs. v. Claxton Enter., 255 Ga, App.
