The lawsuit is back! The lawsuit is back!

Oh joy!

For a while there I was beginning to think that I would actually have to find another hobby. Or start thinking about the upcoming season: debating the pros and cons of the 3-4 vs. 4-3 or Longshore vs. Riley. What a total waste of time!!

But no, I'm saved! Call back the lawyers, the pundits, the hippies, it's time for "The Appeal"!! It's like a sequel to an awesome movie except you don't have to wait a long time for the release. It features some new characters, plus a lot of your old favorites. And a lot of rehashed arguments!!

You can read some initial reviews on SF Gate. Yes, Carolyn is back as herself, but seems to have lost some of her punch...we'll see. You can also read UC's latest filing here. New UC attorney Paul Fogel is stunning in his debut. I've never read such an "opposition to writ of supersedeas". Let's be honest - I've never read an opposition to writ of supersedeas, but with lines like this, who can argue:

Petitioners claim or suggest that the trial court erred on certain evidentiary or procedural issues. (Petn. 10,41). Wrong.

In addition to the usual arguments, Fogel's new twist, which seems quite clever, is to argue that by delaying the SAHPC, plaintiffs are preventing the university from complying with Article IX on gender equality is college sports. Take that Becky O'Malley!

Now I haven't found a copy of the actual appeal filed by Volker and co. but from the few quotes in Fogel's piece, it sounds like a doozy! Apparently he calls the SAHPC:

A stepping stone to gridiron greatness for the University's beleagured football team.

Now they're coming after the football team too! This could get really fun!

And for those who like the original trial, Volker has filed a petition to remake. Apparently he didn't like the ending and prefers his studio cut. In this version, the other foundation reinforcements (not the grade beam) are part of the Stadium and violate A-P.

Our old friend Judge Miller will screen this version on Aug. 12. This is one day before the current stay will expire. It should be an exciting week folks!!
