The full 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has turned down Attorney General Lisa Madigan's request to reconsider an earlier ruling that found the state's ban on concealed carry to be unconstitutional.
That earlier ruling from a three-judge panel ordered the state to repeal its ban and replace it with a reasonable concealed carry law by June. Madigan had asked the full 10-judge panel to review the case, but that request was rejected on a 5-4 vote; one justice did not participate in the discussion on the request for rehearing.
There was no immediate word on whether Madigan would attempt a further appeal of the ruling.
