Yet more legal action in the America's Cup: Alinghi files motion
CORRECTION: Our initial story was erroneous. Alinghi did NOT file a motion to disqualify GGYC's counsel. According to a clarification we received from the Alinghi press office it is simply a clerical mistake. The OTSC relates to an application to disqualify GGYC for failing to produce the required Customs House Registry or, in the alternative, compelling them to produce the Customs House Registry.
We'll use a cliché phrase but it perfectly describes the current situation in the America's Cup. It seems there is no light at the end of the long dark legal tunnel of the world's pinnacle sailing event.
According to the automated mailing system of the NY State Supreme Court, Alinghi filed motion number 8, some time in the afternoon of Thursday, April 30.
We'll have more information as soon as possible.
