As previously noted, a federal judge recently ruled against's lawsuit against the city of Atlanta seeking to allow concealed carry permit holders to carry in the non-secure areas of Atlanta's airport.

Now comes news that will appeal the judge's dismissal of the group's lawsuit:
GCO [] has filed a notice of appeal from the September 26, 2008 judgment of the federal court in GCO’s case against the City of Atlanta regarding the City’s program of illegally searching, detaining, and arresting GFL holders for lawfully carrying firearms in the non-secure areas of the Atlanta airport. The appeal will be heard by a 3-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

Hopefully's appeal will prove successful.
