I never mentioned when Ransome was there or anything about the lawsuit! Seems
you don't read well or I guess once you set the subject of a thread, that's
all you want to deal with.

What I was saying was that Ransome ran the company into the ground long before
the lawsuit and therefore, it did a lot to set the stage for the lawsuit.
They had to earn money somehow to keep the company afloat and to save their
stock price.
