Like other visitors he says he will stay and see the Olympics and has no problem going back to Centennial Park.
The park has been closed since early Saturday morning. Olympic organizers say they will re-open the venue Tuesday morning with a memorial service for the victims. Workers have already tried to eliminate any reminders of the murderous attack. Meantime the investigation into the bombing is moving forward--federal investigators say they have identified several potential suspects.

Christy Brzonkala's rape case against two Virginia Tech football players was dismissed last week by a federal judge.

It would only happen, now, Jean, if Brzonkala appeals and wins a reversal

of Judge Jackson Kiser's decision... a bit of a legal long- shot.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=@file;


The 42-page ruling accepted a factual basis for Brzonkala's case against the two athletes: Tony Morrison and James Crawford... that the two men sexually assaulted her in their dorm room at Tech in September of 1994.
The judge had already dropped Tech as a defendant, and now he's dismissed the case entirely, declaring the Violence Against Women Act UNconstitutional.
(----------------)
ANCHOR=Keith


While Judge Kiser concluded violence against women is a troublesome aspect of American life, he said Congress can't "cure all of the ills of mankind."
The case could be heard in STATE Court. Brzonkala's lawyer filed a claim in Montgomery Country two weeks ago.

But, Jean, an appeal of the FEDERAL court order is probably more likely.

ANCHOR=Keith/FULL

Well, you remember that the U-S Justice Department and NOW, the National Organization for Women both rallied to Brzonkala's cause. With their clout and financial support, it seems likely attorney Eileen Wagner will appeal.
She would much prefer to try the case under the Violence Against Women act in FEDERAL court.

The Appeals Court would have to say judge Kiser was wrong and send it back to him for trial eventually.
The appeal, briefs, oral arguments, another ruling- - It could take another year.
