Ind. Courts - More on "IndyCar tabs retired Indiana Supreme Court justice to hear Chevrolet appeal"

Updating this ILB entry from May 3rd, MotorAuthority.com is reporting this evening "INDYCAR Turbo Decision Upheld, Honda Prevails." Anne Proffit's story begins:

Retired Indiana Supreme Court Justice Theodore R. Boehm heard all sides of the INDYCAR Turbo-Gate story on Wednesday, listening to an appeal of a decision handed down by a three-part panel that denied General Motors' Chevrolet brand's objection to Honda Performance Development's use of a Borg Warner 0.71 A/R compressor cover for their engine, which uses a single turbocharger. Both Chevrolet and Lotus engines engaged in the IZOD IndyCar Series use twin Borg Warner turbochargers.

The jurist took nearly two days to release his decision, which denied the appeal brought forth by General Motors. He conducted the appeal hearing on May 9 in Indianapolis; pursuant to Rule 13.11 in the IZOD IndyCar Series rulebook, the appeal decision is final and binding.
