Not being a lawyer, the question which comes to my mind is whether the court's ruling
is a matter of exerting an obligation to adhere to a current contract or the right to distribution. From where I sit, it would appear that the court ruled on the matter of an existing contract between AA and Orbitz; not on a matter relating to perpetual access to distribution. Thus, the ruling may be a short-term jurisdiction over a contract in the battle; but not necessarily a long-term jurisdiction over the right of access to unfettered distribution.
