Larry Ellison’s men in black responded to Africa Diaspora Maritime’s lawsuit yesterday, unleashing a salvo that has a good chance of sinking any hope the Defender-wannabe might have had of getting his foot in the door to the Golden Gate. GGYC’s argument is pretty basic: ADM has no legal right to challenge anything, but even if they did, their complaint didn’t allege any GGYC wrongdoing that the court should enforce. GGYC is probably right, and if they win, (and since ADM boss Charlest Kithcart failed to make any real impact on the mainstream media with his African-Americans vs. Rich White Sailors story) the ADM challenge is over, a short footnote in the legal history of the America’s Cup.

You can check out Golden Gate’s Motion to Dismiss here, and scroll to the bottom of the ADM lawsuit thread for the latest info and analysis (mixed with what seem to be plenty of drunken rambling and verbal excrement).
