    Re: Seriously? - Court to hear fan lawsuit over "Spy Gate"

    The case was dismissed in the District Court. The plaintiffs (the fan-attorneys) appealed to the Appeals Court. So the Appeals Court has to "hear" arguments at least. Strong possibility they'll affirm the lower court decision. It would be nice if they order attorney fees against the plaintiffs as well.

    But this is just routine on appeal. Got to give the parties a chance to at least state their basis for appeal.

    From what I remember about hearing about these guys, they have a history of frivolous lawsuits like this. I agree that the appeals court will most likely affirm the lower court's decision to dismiss the case.

    It'd be nice if the 'real' story was their frivolous lawsuits instead of the likely chatter that will come from their continued suit--although I expect the mediots to keep it to a somewhat minimum. That said, I'm sure it'll show up on a certain sports news network, and be featured in a certain city's newspapers too.

    One more reason to beat their ass#s even harder next year.

    I wish people would stop being so greedy

    At least they're giving Weekly World News a storyline.

    After Florio hears about this and posts a few paragraphs about this non-story, I'll put the over/under at 150 comments on PFT.

    The story was posted on PFT at 8:46 PM. Right now, it's up to 33 comments. I think it will crack 100, but 150 is pushing it.

    That's why I don't see this decision being reversed. Ruling would not only affect sports but all other entertainment events.

    What does Tomase think? That's what is most important to me.

    Absolutely. If they rule in favor of this guy then where does it end.

    Someone should take out a lawsuit against the NFL for poor officiating in Superbowl 42. Why not....

    Can we maybe sue the NFL next for letting Bernard Pollard hit Brady and ruin the 2008 season?

    Just another minor reason to hate the New Jersey Green Beans and loathe their pathetic fans.
