The Newnan Times Herald reported GCO’s victory in the Georgia Court of Appeals, and the county attorney is quoted indicating that he will present the court’s decision to the Board of Commissioners before any decision is made on appealing to the Supreme Court. From the end of the news story:
“We are pleased the court of appeals saw the clear and obvious preemption of Coweta County’s ordinance by state law,” said John Monroe, lead attorney for Georgia Carry.
“Coweta County residents and park visitors all can feel safer now, knowing that the county’s attempt to make its parks ‘victim disarmament zones’ has been thwarted.”
The order is still subject to review, said Lee, though he doesn’t expect any major changes. When a final order is issued, he will present it to the commissioners, who will decide whether to appeal the decision.
