RICHMOND, Va. -- Attorneys for the class-action suit brought forth by travel agent Sarah Hall filed an appeal Nov. 4 in the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals here in an attempt to reverse a court ruling that last week that dismissed their antitrust class-action suit against the major airlines.

The process now requires the court of appeals to establish a briefing scheduling, during which the plaintiff and defendants file briefs with the court arguing whether the case should go forward.

Later in the process, a three-judge panel will hear oral arguments, which will be followed by a ruling.

Hall's attorney Daniel Shulman told TravelWeekly.com that some appeals take months. "Others take several years," he said. "I don't know how long this will take."
