We’ve been following the Black Swan case fairly closely here on the Cultural Property & Archaeology Law Blog, and in the last month or two I’ve been getting emails and comments asking what’s going on in the case. But, finally! There is news to report!
Oral arguments have been scheduled on Odyssey Marine Exploration’s appeal to the 11th Circuit from the District Court’s order dismissing the case and ordering the coins be turned over the Spain. They are likely to take days because there are a good few dozen parties to this action. An OME press release states arguments are tentatively scheduled for the week of February 28, 2010.
