Yahoo says it has been ordered to pay $2.7bn (1.68bn) by a Mexican court.

The reported ruling follows a lawsuit stemming from allegations of breach of contract and lost profits related to a yellow pages listing service.

Yahoo said it "believes the plaintiffs' claims are without merit and will vigorously pursue all appeals".

I think lawyers need to find a new catch phrase besides "vigorously". Is there a link to the contract anywhere?

Maybe a new planet would be a better option, Sarge. ;)

That figure of $2.7 Billion seems out of proportion, imho. ianal

It would seem that the Mexican courts are trying to make a point...

... perhaps pushing Yahoo to bail out of Mexico entirely?
... setting a precedent for "bigger fish"?
... setting the stage for someone else to pick up Yahoo's market share?

I live in Mexico, and while none of the above seem likely or logical, none would be out of character.

Sure it's not 2.7bn pesos?

I'm sure Marissa wishes that were the case. Unfortunately, no.

Stock fell 1.4% after the news was released, that's about how worried investors are over "Yahoo de Mexico" and this "non-final" judgment.

We should open up a betting pool on whether Mexico will get the money, some money, or no money.

I'm betting none. You?

My guess: They'll appeal, then negotiate out of court for "an undisclosed amount"
Something in the range of 100MM is a lot more likely
