ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the court cases related to participation in the yachting race America's Cup. At a February 2009 hearing before the New York Court of Appeals in Albany, lawyers for Oracle chief executive officer (CEO) Larry Ellison's BMW Oracle Racing made their final plea to force fellow billionaire Ernesto Bertarelli to race Ellison for the Cup. The legal wrangling over the Cup has exposed the unseemly side of yacht racing.
