Join Bridge Winners
Standing

Question for the lawyers in the room:

Who, if anyone, would have legal standing to bring charges against Fischer and Schwartz?

For example, I would think that the pairs that scored well in the Cavendish would be in a good position to claim damages. On a more speculative note, what about the various sponsors who hired teams to competing in KO events that the Fisher team won? I can't imagine that they are particularly pleased about what has come to pass.

From my own perspective, I have little doubt that Fischer and Schwartz will be drummed out of bridge. I'm not sure how much of a deterrent this is and thing that a few years of costly litigation might prove to be an effective lesson. (And given that F+S have probably teed off some very rich folks, costly litigation might be a very feasible route to go.
