On March 16 in Federal Court for the District of Columbia, the Honorable
Stanley S. Harris ordered that Mr. Uri Geller must pay, by April 16th, the
sum of $106,433.97 to CSICOP, in satisfaction of CSICOP's action for
payment of fees and costs incurred as a result of Mr. Geller's suit
against James Randi & CSICOP.

Any fees and/or costs incurred by CSICOP in the period since their action
for satisfaction, that is, from June 30th, 1992, to the present, may also
be required of Mr. Geller. That might amount to several tens of thousands
of dollars more.

This order is of course of great interest to others involved in lawsuits
with Mr. Geller.

The scoreboard now stands:

Geller suit brought against Timex: Timex wins.
Geller suit #1 brought against James Randi: dismissed.
Geller suit #2 brought against James Randi: dismissed.
Geller suit #3 brought against James Randi & CSICOP: pending*.
Geller suit #4 brought against James Randi (Japan): pending.
Byrd suit brought against James Randi: trial date set for May 25.
