Lawsuits -- particularly the big-dollar, complex corporate variety -- often get compared to marathons. In the case of McKesson Corp.'s legal struggle with the government of Iran, however, that comparison doesn't quite cut it. On Jan. 22, the dispute, a fight over shares in an Iranian dairy, reached its 28th anniversary. It has wended its way through one international arbitration, two federal trials and five trips to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. It could soon be heading for its sixth.
