Halsey Minor‘s lawyer never got back to me with an answer to my question as to whether the founder of CNET would appeal the $6.64-million court judgment against him in the U.S. District Court case of Sotheby’s v. Minor.
Minor himself did, in an e-mail that hit my inbox at 9:14 tonight:
Lee, I will be appealing. This is not a financial issue. I will put up my money as required. It’s an issue I feel very strongly about. It’s an issue about disclosure and the integrity of the auction process.
Judge Barbara Jones clearly didn’t agree. On to the Court of Appeals!
