The latest decision from the New York Supreme Court has ruled that both boats shall be measured with all ballast on board.
Justice Kornreich took advice from three America's Cup experts and former jury members earlier this month on a number of technical issues. David Tillett (AUS), Graham McKenzie (NZL) and Bryan Willis (GBR) returned a unanimous opinion on each of the five issues.

"New York Supreme Court Justice Kornreich has brought a degree more certainty to the 33rd America's Cup today. It is good to at last have her decision on some of the pending issues. Alinghi continues to focus on its training programme ahead of the Match for the 33rd America's Cup against BMW Oracle on 8 February 2010."
Tom Ehman, spokesperson
"This is a victory for fair rules and common sense...All we have asked is that the America's Cup be raced under the normal rules and procedures that nearly every sailor in the world competes under."
