Graphic Artists Guild Files Appeal Against Illustrators' Partnership

The Graphic Artists Guild has appealed the appellate judge's decision this week to dismiss the defamation lawsuit against The Illustrators' Partnership. Here's the press release:

Guild Files Notice of Appeal in Dismissal of Defamation Lawsuit

On April 26, the Guild filed a notice of appeal in the dismissal of the defamation lawsuit filed in the Fall of 2008. The Guild strongly disagrees with the judge's ruling in this case. For clarification purposes, the lawsuit is a defamation lawsuit regarding statements made by the defendants named in the lawsuit. It has no connection to the Orphan Works bill of 2008, or the Google class action lawsuit. Our statement on the notice of appeal can be downloaded here.
