Where was this lawyering 6 months ago?

I hope it's not too late.

I bet it felt great for Nesson to vent like that. He even threw in a little law.

How likely is this filing to have any effect? It seems to me (not a lawyer) that most of these arguments would be for an appeal. Also, if going this route, where is the part about Joel having to admit "liability" in his testimony, which he was not qualified to do?

Derivative, in the summer perhaps his legal assistants (read: students) were on summer vacation?

And unfortunately for Tenenbaum, some witnesses were excluded because of late timing or expertise. Even though those witnesses probably have relevant and interesting testimony, it's kind of irrelevant at this point...
