Oscar Pistorius Aims to Compete on Level Playing Field at 2008 Beijing Olympics
Date:2/13/2008

rgued that inadequate tests were performed on Pistorius, and that the IAAF has erred in accepting the tests as the sole premise for making such a grave decision. Pistorius has now lodged an appeal against the decision of the IAAF, and has referred the matter to arbitration in accordance with the IAAF rules.

Pistorius stated: "I am filing this appeal not just for myself, but for all disabled athletes. We deserve a chance to compete at the highest levels if our bodies permit us to do so."

The legal team from Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, which has 27 offices on four continents, has committed lawyers from its preeminent sports and entertainment practice to fight Pistorius' cause. The effort will include a collaboration of offices from the USA to Italy to South Africa, with the lead partners being Marco Consonni and Bruno Gattai from Italy and Jeffrey Kessler and David Feher from the United States.

"We believe in the cause that Oscar is fighting, and will use all of our resources to pursue what is right," said Jeffrey Kessler of Dewey & LeBoeuf.
