Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Just when the Masters of the Universe may
have thought it was safe to go back in the
gold pool, GATA's Reginald H. Howe has filed,
in U.S. District Court in Boston, a motion to
amend the judgment of Judge Reginald Lindsay
in the case of Howe vs. Bank of International
Settlements et al.

That is, the Howe case, while dismissed by

Having read this far through the ruling, it
was becoming clear that the judge was
stretching to justify his conclusions. But
the most egregious statement was yet to come
in the tortured reasoning offered in the
