California Attorney General Bill Lockyer said Kollar-Kotelly's ruling closed some important loopholes in the original settlement.``There are obviously people in Silicon Valley who would wish for more, but the judge is not a fairy godmother who grants our wishes without a strong legal case that proves our point,' Lockyer said. ``It is our judgment that we have done as well as we can.'...Rich Gray, a Silicon Valley attorney who has closely followed the case, said an appeal of Kollar-Kotelly's ruling will face steep legal hurdles. To make its case, Massachusetts will have to prove that Kollar-Kotelly abused her discretion or that the remedy she ordered was ineffective.Given the amount of input she received from the public and the opposing states, that will be difficult, Gray said. ``The court of appeals is going to be very, very reluctant to second-guess what she did, which is why I suspect the state of California has decided to call it a day,' he said.http://www.siliconvalley.com/mld/siliconvalley/4635701.htmSome discussion about filing another suit.
