I found out a lot of things today.
On January 21, 2010, Both Speedo and USA Swimming asked the Honorable Judge, James B. Selna, to throw out TYR's anti-trust complaint against both Speedo and USA Swimming. (It's not going to happen.)
In court case progression this is the usual course of events: before going to trial you ask a judge to throw the case out no mater how absurd it is or hard it is to keep a straight face even if the blood on your client's hands is still wet and the gun at his side still has smoke coming out of it.
What made their request so unusual to me is that they requested that their reasons for asking that the case be thrown out of court be kept confidential! - In other words USA Swimming does not want the public to know why they are innocent!
So, why is that?
Remember this is a national governing body set up by the United States as a non-profit organization to guide the sport of swimming and our best competitors towards the Olympic Games but look how USA Swimming responds: they want to keep secrets as to how they do business with a suit manufacturer from the public.
New readers may not remember the lawsuit so here is a link to the actual complaint PDF:[Link]Here is a link to preliminary ruling PDF in the case that totally "spanks" Speedo, USA Swimming and Mark Schubert and simply declares the case is going to court and they all have an uphill battle:[Link]
I am moving forward with a second swim related website to raise money for a pro league. I will say I have an exceptionally talented person in front guiding me through this. I will post more details as I build the site and I will definitely ask for suggestions.
