Not So Appealing

Coming as a surprise to absolutely no one…

Valencia, Spain, 1 August 2008: The Golden Gate Yacht Club (GGYC) said
today it has lodged an appeal against this week’s decision of
the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court.“We
believe the Challenger of Record has to be a real yacht club. It cannot
be something that is manufactured with a defender to set up a one-sided
event. This decision would set an absurd precedent,” Tom Ehman,
the club’s spokesman said.“We believe we have an excellent
case for winning on appeal.” Because it was a split decision among
five judges the club has an automatic right of appeal. Ehman said the
club looked forward to obtaining a result that will end any further
legal dispute.
