BMW Oracle sends Justice Cahn a letter; Alinghi replies by sending another letter
Just when it seemed that Monday, January 28 was the deadline for the two litigating parties to submit their documents in the NY Supreme Court, we have yet another two letters sent to Justice Cahn.
First, BMW Oracle sent Justice Cahn a letter on Tuesday, replying to Alinghi's documents submitted on Monday. Then, on Wednesday, Alinghi replies to BMW Oracle's reply by sending Justice Cahn another letter. Without going further into legal details, both letters focus once again on whether BMW Oracle's challenge is valid.
Both letters are accessible through the box at the top of this article.
We also publish, albeit belatedly, an interview Tom Ehman gave NZ Sport Radio last week, shortly after the hearing at the NY Supreme Court. Unfortunately, we only got the MP3 file of the radio interview yesterday. GGYC's spokesman talked about the hearing and the litigation and reiterated his team's commitment to hold a conventional 34th America's Cup here in Valencia in 2011, if of course they win the 33rd edition of the event. There have been increasing fears here in Valencia, especially among local politicians, that Larry Ellison, owner of the team, might use some last-minute excuse and take the Cup to San Fransisco, hometown of the Golden Gate Yacht Club.
