Laser ISAF ILCA action brings expanded Bruce Kirby law suit
Tue, 30 Apr 2013
In a widely anticipated move Bruce Kirby Inc. today filed a First Amended Complaint adding claims related to the ILCA Rule Change, the ISAF Reversal on the Fundamental Rule change, the apparent new ISAF Plaques and other matters, and adding as a party the owner of the Laser trademarks in Europe: Velum Limited ITM SA (Antigua and Barbuda). A copy is below.
This amended Complaint claims that the latest ISAF and ILCA actions have increased the damages caused to Kirby and certainly raise the stakes, in the matter which is now before the US. Federal Courts.
The Laser Torch matter is already on the agenda for next week's ISAF Mid-Year meeting in Copenhagen with numbers of MNA´s apparently unhappy with ISAF´s handling of this whole affair.
