"We are pleased by the court's ruling. It's well reasoned and applies the law correctly,'' said Barry Blum, chief legal counsel for Burger King Corporation. "This ruling will allow us to now focus our attention on an orderly transition of Mr. Hawkins' 22 restaurants in Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta and Maryland. It is our hope that we can come to terms with Mr. Hawkins to transfer ownership as quickly as possible, thereby assuring the employees, suppliers, and customers that these restaurants will remain open.''
