Seems there is quite a snake pit involved when attempting to use boilerplate tactics, and bullying tactics at that, to litigate in 50 different states with 50 different sets of RICO, SLAAP, consumer protection, and other laws in place -- let alone not being licensed to practice law in all of the affected states. All this, federal law not withstanding.

I was able to highlight the whole link and copy and paste it into my browser, even though it ran off the right side of the column.

But here's a short link.
