NY court rules in favor of US club

NEW York's top court says a US sailing club is the rightful challenger for the America's Cup, reversing a lower court.

The unanimous ruling yesterday by the Court of Appeals says San Francisco's Golden Gate Yacht Club, which backs BMW Oracle Racing, is the legitimate Challenger of Record. It will negotiate race terms with Societe Nautique de Geneve, the Swiss club that backs two-time defending champion Alinghi. The six judges reversed a mid-level court that found a Spanish association backed by the Swiss club qualified as challenger.
