    Okay, maybe "exactly" is a little exaggerated. But GD obviously thinks he has some kind of case with the court of arbitration of sport. Changing the protocol is not, and never has been the intent of their action. Its to hold ACEA and Harvey Schiller to the agreement (or whatever it is) he signed to hold the qualifier in Auckland. Logic dictates that the piece of paper in question, complete with signatures from both parties, must be of some significance to ETNZ and ACEA, and the Auckland event. No one knows what is, or isn't in that document, but like I said, GD (Who is no slouch when it comes to negotiations) obviously thinks there is merit to taking that route. Not to be too picky but Dalton is seeking redress before the Arbitration Panel defined by the AC Protocol and not the Court of Arbitration for Sport, best known for sorting out issues in the Olympic arena. Hardly likely that the countersigned document, part of which was displayed by Dalton, is the beginning and end of his case. More likely a series of exchanges and negotiations over a period of days, perhaps weeks, with emails, verbally agreed deadlines for performance, who knows what else. The fact that Schiller and Dalton both seem certain of the righteousness of their causes suggests a tangled web. wth you talking son

    Federal court clerk orders America's Cup champion's boat seized to satisfy fired sailor's lien By BERNIE WILSON AP Sports Writer March 07, 2015 - 2:56 pm EST AAA SAN DIEGO — A federal court clerk has issued a warrant authorizing marshals to seize America's Cup champion Oracle Team USA's prototype boat to satisfy a seaman's lien filed by sailor Joe Spooner, whose contract was terminated in January. The order was issued late Friday by the U.S. District Court in San Francisco by clerk Richard W. Wieking. The boat hadn't been seized as of late morning Saturday, Oracle Team USA spokesman Peter Rusch said. Spooner sued last month, saying his contract for $25,000 a month was terminated without cause. He was a grinder with Oracle Team USA during its America's Cup victories in 2010 and 2013. Chief Magistrate Joseph C. Spero denied Spooner's initial complaint on Feb. 23, but said he could file an amended complaint, which he did Wednesday. Oracle Team USA is owned by software billionaire Larry Ellison.

    you erroneously assume oracle /core -had a hull number and was then required under state and federal laws to register the vessel - I posted those issues way back and admiralty jurisdiction -you missed it and still off- sail /number was used as the id -complaint is compliant -

    arrested development Add Joe Spooner to the pro sailors calling shenanigans on the already-embattled Oracle Team USA’s hiring and firing practices. From our friends at www.BoatingLaw.com, who do NOT represent the Plaintiff. You can read the full complaint here. The America’s Cup AC45 “4 Oracle Team USA” may soon be arrested by the U.S. Marshals at its berth in San Francisco, pursuant to a lawsuit filed in Federal Court by a former crew member against Oracle Racing and the AC45 itself. Joe Spooner, Oracle Racing’s former grinder and crew for two America’s Cup titles and three Fastnet Race wins, is claiming a seaman’s lien against the vessel for approximately $725,000 in unpaid wages, plus punitive damages, for an alleged wrongful discharge by Team Oracle. Under maritime law of the United States, the vessel itself can be sued in Federal Court and be arrested by the U.S. Marshals pending the outcome of the suit. The AC45 foiling multihull is raced in the America’s Cup World Series and used for America’s Cup training It is a smaller version of the AC72 raced in the 2013 America’s Cup.

    F1: Valencia organisers face corruption probe 21 December 2014 The much-vaunted European Grand Prix in Valencia continues to attract unwanted attention nearly three years after its last appearance on the F1 schedule. F1: Valencia organisers face corruption probe Spain's unsuccessful bid to run a second F1 event looks set to end in greater ignominy as the national prosecutor's office investigates allegations of corruption by organisers of the European Grand Prix in Valencia. The city's America's Cup port hosted the race for five years between 2008-12 and had been due to alternate with Barcelona as the home of the Spanish Grand Prix from 2014, but attempted to withdraw from its long-term contract with Formula One Management when a change of local government officials determined that the €40m event was a drain on financial resources. “Valencia president Alberto Fabra is determined to correct the nonsense of a grand prix that he inherited from his predecessor Francisco Camps and has cost a fortune to the public purse,” Spanish newspaper Diario Sportreported at the time, “In this context, it would be very difficult to explain to the taxpayers of the region that more money is being allocated for F1.” Although the story believed that FOM was seeking €33m to terminate Valencia's deal ahead of time, further problems now appear to lay ahead of its organisers, with Associated Press claiming that an investigation has been opened into alleged corruption and embezzlement by those behind the event. Former regional president Camps, tourism official Dolores Johnson and Jorge Martinez, a shareholder in the Valmor Sports company assigned the hosting rights by Camps, are all named in the writ, which calls on the courts to investigate alleged irregularities, including how Camps allowed a private company with no experience in motorsport and only 12 employees, to operate the multimillion-dollar event. The proceedings also names Camps as a suspect in cases of misappropriation of public funds and corruption. The street circuit, which took racers between the various America's Cup warehouses as part of a spectacular harbour-side setting, began to fall into disrepair within seven months of home hero Fernando Alonso's victory in the 2012 European Grand Prix, with looted electrics, flooded access tunnels, sewers without manhole covers and 'a bridge that cost two million Euros now only used by homeless to spend the night'. Valencia was left off the 2013 calendar, due to have been replaced by a second American event on the streets of New Jersey, but the US bid foundered, and continues to do so. Bernie Ecclestone has cast doubt on the much-hyped race ever making the calendar, having been left out of 2015 plans. "The Americans want other races, but I'm not too sure that we do," he said this week.

    FINDINGS IN RESPECT OF MATTHEW MITCHELL 63. After his arrival in San Francisco on 15th July 2012, Matthew Mitchell was involved with the assembly of boat BAR. It was the first time Matt assembled an AC45. Matt testified that he had never read the AC45 Class Rule. Page 10 of 16 64. He was aware that filling a king post was on the BAR job list, but at the hearing he claimed that he did not know what ‘fill kingpost’ meant and that he did not realize that it might involve a rules violation. 65. Simeon Tienpont stated in his signed interview record as well as in the hearing that, after Matt asked him for help, he and Matt carried out the job of filling the kingpost with resin together. Matt claimed he did not see anyone fill the kingpost. The Jury is comfortably satisfied that Matt participated in filling the forward kingpost of BAR with resinous material. 66. In his evidence Matt claimed he had only picked up the kingpost from the workbench and noted it was heavy, and that he looked into the end and saw resinous material with something floating in it. In his signed interview record Matt stated that he did not think the kingpost being heavy was exceptional. The Jury finds that Matt participated in filling the forward kingpost, but even if he was not involved in including the additional weight, Matt knew that the kingpost was heavy. It should have been apparent to a sailor of Matt’s experience that when finding a kingpost that was nearly 2.5 times heavier than the norm, its legality was obviously questionable. 67. Matt was the BAR boat captain. He is currently a AC72 boat captain and AC34 is his fifth America’s Cup campaign. The AC45 class rule is 12 pages long. It is difficult to accept that a person with Matt’s experience would not have familiarized himself with the rules. DECISION AS TO MATTHEW MITCHELL 68. The Jury is comfortably satisfied that the action was a gross breach of a rule and of good sportsmanship.

    America's Cup: Lawsuit against Oracle Racing lodged in San Francisco 'J.P.Morgan BAR AC45 team training ahead of an ACWS regatta. Skippered by Ben Ainslie with Oracle team mates Simon Daubney, Matt Mitchell, Jan Dekker.and Kyle Langford.' © Lloyd Images/J.P.Morgan BAR In further legal fallout from the 34th America's Cup one of the New Zealand sailors named in an action bought by the International Sailing Federation has in turn lodged a lawsuit in a California Court against his former racing team, Oracle Team USA. Matthew Mitchell claims he had to pay out $68,000 in legal fees, interest and other costs, to defend himself in the ongoing case with the International Sailing Federation over changes made to the one design AC45 catamarans used in preliminary regattas in 2012 and 2013. The issue erupted in San Francisco in late July 2013, just six weeks before the start of the 34th America's Cup. Three AC45's were affected - two raced by Oracle Team USA and another for Ben Ainslie Racing, which was prepared and managed by Oracle Team USA. Ainslie's boat was also crewed by several members of Oracle Team USA. Ainslie was a key crew member aboard the team's larger AC72 catamaran which staged a remarkable comeback to win the America's Cup. After the measurement issues were reported, both Ben Ainslie Racing and Oracle Team USA withdrew their three yachts retrospectively from four regattas in the America's Cup World Series. Several members of the Oracle Team USA shore and sailing crew were suspended by the International Jury for the duration of the regatta. The team itself was fined $250,000. Matt Mitchell (USA) sailing team Oracle Team USA - Oracle Team USA media Click Here to view large photo One case has been heard by the Court for Arbitration for Sport over the incident, and that body confirmed the involvement of a Dutch sailor, Dirk de Ridder, who denies that involvement, knowledge or instruction. However his suspension from the sport was reduced from three years to 18months. Mitchell's and other cases are at an earlier stage of consideration by the ISAF and further action may follow. Matthew Mitchell sued Oracle Racing Inc. on Wednesday in Superior Court, in San Francisco. According to a news report, Mitchell claims his employer told him to add the weight, so the employer should foot his legal bills. Oracle Racing's principle owner is Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison, who is not a party to the case. Mitchell says that Oracle Racing hired him to prepare a 45-foot catamaran for the America's Cup World Series, a string of races building up to the 34th America's Cup, which took place in San Francisco Bay in 2013 and used 72-foot boats. Mitchell says flew to San Francisco in 2012 and joined his teammates on the Oracle Racing team. 'Immediately after his arrival, plaintiff was assigned by defendant to commission and prepare a boat known as the BAR45 (Ben Ainslie Racing),' the complaint states. His tasks were 'listed on a 'job list' that was prepared and issued by defendant,' the complaint states. 'Included in the 'job list' was a task listed as 'Fill Kingpost.' The kingpost is a sturdy post near the bow that rises above the deck. Race officials subsequently found that the kingpost on Mitchell's boat was too heavy and broke AC45 class rules. Mitchell's was named as a defendant by the America's Cup International Jury and was required to attend a two-day hearing in August 2013. The jury decided that Mitchell probably participated in filling the kingpost with heavy resinous material. The decision described Mitchell, who is from New Zealand, as a sailor and yacht rigger working on his fifth America's Cup campaign, who should have known that because the kingpost on the AC45 class boat he was assembling was 'nearly 2.5 times heavier than the norm, its legality was obviously questionable.' Mitchell has had to pay for representation not only in the original hearing but also in subsequent investigations by the International Sailing Federation and Yachting New Zealand, according to the complaint. Oracle Racing is required by the California Labor Code to indemnify Mitchell because he was preparing the boat in line with his employer's instructions and has had to pay defense fees 'as a direct and proximate result of the acts of defendant,' according to the lawsuit. Mitchell seeks his legal fees, plus interest, and special damages for failure to indemnify under the California Legal Code.
