    The meeting/s went well according to the media reports, with the Antiguan team leader Dr. Cort expressing hope that at last a resolution may be in sight. But he did not give any detail as the deal is not yet done.

    Edited to add that Dr. Cort felt that if there was a real possibility of an amicable resolution he would be prepared to agree to an extension of the arbitration proceedings at the WTO beyond the present June 6 deadline.

    Helluva situation to hand on to the Obama Administration, but they will perhaps do a better - less arrogant - job of sorting this out than the USTR has done to date - you get the feeling that the USTR is just blowing off these legitimate complaints, and for that matter the WTO.

    The RGA statement is strongly worded and perhaps reflects the exasperation of its major European gambling company members with the attitude of the USTR and the sluggish manner in which this is moving forward.

    Peter Mandelson is no longer the EU Commissioner pursuing this complaint, and the change in command has possibly dislocated the initiative somewhat.

    It's unlikely that anything fresh will happen until the new year, now imo.

    Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.), chairman of the Europe subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, responded to Dikshit's guilty plea by urging the legalization of online gambling:

    "It is of critical importance that we find an effective and immediate way to regulate and tax internet gaming in order to avoid a serious trade dispute with the E.U., which, in turn, could have global trade repercussions for the United States. The retroactive and discriminatory enforcement against E.U. parties, who ceased operating in the U.S. a long time ago, has directly led to an escalating trade dispute with the E.U."
