Dear Dr. Lin,
This afternoon, we received the attached decision from the US District Court for the District of Columbia granting the Motions to Dismiss filed by the United States and the Republic of China. As you will note, the decision, though we believe wrong, was a thoughtful decision I think you will find very interesting and in some ways encouraging and helpful to your objectives.
We will begin right away doing a full evaluation of the Court’s decision in preparation for filing a notice of appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia within the next sixty (60) days (we can file sooner, of course). We will give you further thoughts about the Court’s decision as soon as possible, likely by the end of next week before we have to go to London for two weeks for an arbitration we are handling there.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
