The lawsuit brought by women ski jumpers in their attempt to gain inclusion on the 2010 Olympic Games began this week.  Some updates follow.

The Vancouver Sun report on the first day of the trial:

Female ski jumpers get their days in court

And Gary Mason of the Globe and Mail calls out the IOC for its exceedingly poor behaviour:

Point out its flaws, but remember the IOC is tone deaf

At this point the general consensus seems to be that the ruling will be in favor of the IOC and against the jumpers.  The arguments boil down to whether or not the IOC is subject to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  The IOC is arguing, that as an international organization, they do not have to abide by the provisions of the charter.
