    All about to kick off....

    Just a clarification on whether Kirby can sue anyone else. Pretty sure the answer is YES, he can. All he has to do is join GS in a suit and he can begin again. I believe he can have a go at all parties again if the dismissals were "without prejudice". Can't recall if they were or not but I...

    Theoretically speaking, if the ILCA could dump LP as the builder in North America and also acquire the Laser TM, what builder would be the most desirable to become the new authorized NA builder?

    Introducing the New Official Class Sail

    ILCA seems to be silent on LP's release of this new sail. LP is saying this is the sail we've been waiting for. ILCA had patents recently issue on their new sail design. Did LP just swipe the ILCA patented sail? Folks on the SA forum were discussing some time back about whether ILCA was an...

    The Status Report is out: http://ia601604.us.archive.org/30/items/gov.uscourts.ctd.99988/gov.uscourts.ctd.99988.155.0.pdf Nasty and Company still won't turn over documents in discovery. The last paragraph on page 5 gave me a laugh ... go get 'em BK.

    The parties aren't consenting to a bench trail before a "Magistrate Judge." That's different than a trial with a "District Judge."

    Laser in the US and Bart's Bash

    Monkey_feet why isn't your D15 Laser regatta on 9/21 signed up for Bart's Bash?

    Argentina "Training" Laser

    LP owns the Seitech trademark but ILCA does not have rules in place that require the use of a specific dolly in order to be "legal" at the regatta. So the market has provided us with the following options in the US: Seitech Dolly $485 - $660 depending on wheel size Trailex Sling $589 Dynamic...

    However, LP and Rastegar are refusing to cooperate and Kirby is going to have to file motions to compel for them to produce documents (while Kirby has already produced over 3000 documents) and Kirby is also having to subpoena Rastegar. Let's not forget when Rastegar was subpoenaed in the...

    Status report on the Kirby v. LP case was filed today: http://ia601604.us.archive.org/30/items/gov.uscourts.ctd.99988/gov.uscourts.ctd.99988.135.0.pdf Looks like they are in the discovery stage with BK and GSL cooperating, PSA delayed in getting in the game, and the Rastegar/LP camp refusing to...

    Right. Except for the above discussion, there has been no one else talking about the dismissals. Surely, ISAF would have announced their dismissal (if they could). The dismissed defendants were ISAF (Doc 63), Karaya & Vellum (Doc 38) and Rastegar (Doc 39). I'm pretty sure Rastegar is no...

    On Feb. 21, 2014, ISAF, Rastegar, Karaya and Velum were all dismissed from the Kirby v. Laser Performance lawsuit. It's been a month and there have been no announcements. The forums aren't even discussing, questioning or speculating. Sounds like a confidential settlement to me. If ISAF or...

    Dumb Rules We Gotta Change

    Yep. Mr. P is currently explaining "by the lee" and doing a little 'downwind for dummies' for me: http://www.impropercourse.com/2014/03/sailing-in-middle-of-fleet-sailing.html
