Re: Chance of new gTLD delay “above zero”. What do you think?

So I predict the trademark interests will file a lawsuit in whatever federal court has jurisdiction over ICANN's California headquarters, to try once again to stop the program. The uncertain part is whether the court will agree to stop the program immediately, or will allow the new gTLD program to proceed while waiting for the case to come to trial.

i hope not, but i have to agree that your prediction is highly likely. to much money involved not to have a lawsuit filed.
