Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia; J. Owen Forrester, Judge.

Prior report: 11th Cir., 940 F.2d 1471.

Before TJOFLAT, Chief Judge, FAY, KRAVITCH, ANDERSON, COX, BIRCH and DUBINA, Circuit Judges.* 


Since the district court has entered a permanent injunction, and since the validity of that permanent injunction is not before us, it is not judicious for this court to grant the relief being sought on appeal. For that reason, the appeal is dismissed. University of Texas v. Camenisch, 451 U.S. 390, 101 S. Ct. 1830, 68 L. Ed. 2d 175 (1981). Any issues preserved by the injunction bond should be addressed in the first instance by the district court. Id. at 396, 101 S. Ct. at 1834.



Honorable Joseph W. Hatchett and Honorable J.L. Edmondson recused themselves and did not participate in this decision
