ACWS Team Energy hit by Blackwall law salvage claim

Todd Tholke, San Francisco Sailor, Rescues America's Cup Boat, Demands $200,000 (PHOTOS, VIDEO): "According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Tholke and his attorney, John Edgcomb, invoked the Blackwall law that grants "a salvor of imperiled maritime property on navigable waters a monetary award from the owner." According to the law, Tholke may be entitled to a handsome sum to be determined by the court, but estimated by Edgcomb to be "in excess of $200,000." The French team was thus presented with a warrant from the U.S. District Court to "arrest" the boat. "
