ATLANTA - Bob Barr is taking a break from the campaign trail to test his skills in the courtroom..
The former congressman and Libertarian candidate for president will appear before a federal appeals court in Atlanta on Tuesday to argue his defamation lawsuit against Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Barr claims Bloomberg libeled Adventure Outdoors Sporting Goods when he labeled the Smyrna, Ga. gun shop a rogue gun dealer.
The Georgia store is one of 27 gun shops in five states that New York officials sued in 2006. They said lax enforcement of gun laws in some states is contributing to crime in New York.
Barr is seeking to get the case sent back to state court in Georgia. Lawyers for Bloomberg want the case tossed out.
