Billionaire Kirk Kerkorian isn't finished playing poker with DaimlerChrysler AG. He has appealed last month's court decision that he wasn't defrauded in the "merger of equals" by Daimler-Benz AG and Chrysler Corp. in 1998.
Kerkorian also wants a new deck: The appeal asks that a new trial be heard by a jury. His case was heard without a jury by U.S. District Judge Joseph Farnan Jr.
It's not about the money, Kerkorian says - even though he was seeking $1.35 billion in damages from the automaker. A spokeswoman says Kerkorian will donate any award to charity.
