Well guys, I don't think it is old at all. In fact, this is TRUTH! This is NOT speculation or rumor and it is a matter of public record. By posting this information all questions and comments that are not fact can be refuted. Furthermore, those who wish not to be informed or follow these proceedings and possible future of the APBA, LLC, or any other offshore sanctioning body has the right to not read or participate in any threads pertaining thereto. Please allow those that wish to discuss this matter do so in a professional and courteous manner.

Larry,

As you can see this was added so there would't be any confusion that the LLC races can go on and that the points will count. And so this matter can be heard in the court. Under this order the contract is not aloud to be revoked or interfered with until a hearing is held on June 13. At that time the LLC can state their case and the judge will make a decision on who is in charge of APBA. Until that hearing it is C. Strang an the BOD named in the motion.

I'm glad it was posted as I like to stay informed with all this legal stuff that goes on with APBA. However, I wish it would really just go away. APBA is about boat racing and that's what it is, not lawyers in court or any of that. It's sad that today people sue or file lawsuits left and right. I'll be glad when all of this is over and it's just back to boats.

Default Shane, I couldn't agree more.

Shane, I totally agree with you, very well said! I also think this is a very timely subject, that affects many board members. I don’t think there should be a self imposed “Gag order” If we are not free to discuss and analyze on this, the most open of forums, well only more dirt will be swept under the carpet. Neither side should be allowed to do that.
