Alinghi/SNG change lawyers in New York, plan to appeal
Update: We have been contacted by Alinghi and received the official comment on the article:
"We confirm that we have hired a new firm of lawyers in New York, with the revision of the Deed of Gift in mind, and we are still considering all options as we still haven't received the court order".
According to an article that appeared in today's El Mundo, Alinghi/SNG changed their lawyers in New York. According to information from the court, the new lawyers representing the Defender of the America's Cup is the firm Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP (STB).
That news could have passed unnoticed if it weren't for the imminent (always according to the El Mundo newspaper) presentation by STB of an appeal to Justice Cahn's decision.
It also seems that our information last week that the CNEV was preparing an appeal were indeed correct.
We will publish more news as soon as we get it.
