Something I've been wondering for a while, Ray: for judgments like the $1.5 million in this case, is bankruptcy an option? I've heard yes from some and no from others, but I haven't heard a lawyer in the corresponding field answer that.

I'm sure you'll see this very soon if you haven't already, but it appears there has been a verdict.

Can we get on with the appeal already?
