A Superior Court Judge today upheld an earlier decision by school officials to keep the Harry Potter series on the shelves of Gwinnett County school libraries, despite the repeated attempts of a Georgia woman who seeks to have the novels banned. Laura Mallory appeared in court today in an appeal to have the books removed, stating before the hearing that she would go "as far as necessary to get the truth out." Personally, I don't think it's a good idea to raise a whole generation of witches," Mallory said. "I don't think it's good for our country."
After the hearing, reports state that Mrs Mallory "may now file a federal lawsuit."

Update: You can now see video of Laura Mallory during this hearing here, afterwards stating that she has not read the books in their entirety, but rather she "gets so disturbed" that she finds it "excruciatingly painful" to read them.
