At a New York court hearing Tuesday in the America's Cup dispute between billionaire sailors Larry Ellison and Ernesto Bertarelli, arguments over the race's location at times sounded like a debate at the U.N. General Assembly. When the debate ended, the judge ruled that Ras al-Khaimah, an emirate of the United Arab Emirates, cannot host the next race, set for February 2010. The ruling was a win for Ellison's Golden Gate Yacht Club, the official challenger for the cup, and its lawyer, David Boies.
