Howe lawsuit survives hearing on dismissal motions


11:16p ET Thursday, November 1, 2001

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

A hearing in GATA consultant Reginald H. Howe's
gold market manipulation lawsuit against the
Bank for International Settlements, the U.S.
Federal Reserve Board and Treasury Department,
and five bullion banks will be held at 2 p.m.
Monday in U.S. District Court in Boston.

Judge Reginald C. Lindsay will hear argument on
the defendants' motions to dismiss the lawsuit.
If he rejects them, the lawsuit would proceed to
what is called discovery, procedures in which the
plaintiff may compel the defendants to produce
evidence and testimony relevant to the lawsuit
prior to trial.

Monday's hearing is open to the public, but new
security rules require presentation of two forms of
identification with photographs. The hearing will
be held in Courtroom 11 on the fifth floor, of the
United States Courthouse, 1 Courthouse Way, Boston,
Mass., near Boston's South Station.

I'm planning to attend the hearing and to report
on it for you Monday night. If you can't join us,
wish us luck!
