On May 9, 2008, Chief Judge Doris Downs of the Fulton County Superior Court granted GCO’s motion to find the City of Atlanta’s ban on carrying firearms in parks preempted by state law. Judge Downs issued an injunction on May 19, 2008, ordering the city not to enforce its ordinance. In the same case, Judge Downs dismissed GCO’s claims against Roswell and Sandy Springs, finding the claims moot after Roswell and Sandy Springs changed their ordinances from banning carrying in parks to banning carrying to a public gathering. The orders in the case may be viewed here.
