Most importantly, Paul McKee remains committed to this project. Secondly, we think the Court of Appeals got it wrong, so we're glad that they're going to leave [the final call] to somebody else.Read our coverage of the original suit, Dierker's decision, the contentious run-up to the appeals hearing, and the hearing itself.
