The case as it was origionally filed is dead.
The plantiffs have now amended the complaint to add the crimes that have been commited since the origional fileing, as well as seeking punitive damages for the additional crimes of Defamation, Slander, and identity theft. Legal fees are also sought in the amended complaint which is now filed with the Federal Appelet court.
Mistakes were made in the first complaint. The Plantiffs pulled some punches in an efort to resolve the dispute in house and not risk getting DF'ed. The WT took this as a sign of weekness, which Smith exploited to terminate the case. The biggest flaw in the origional case is that the Plantiffs were not seeking monatary damages. The new complaint remadies this, and other mistakes, and oversights have been addressed as well.
Yes, Jason has a parallel case working its way through CA Superior court, but Jason's case is not the same as the federal case.
Rumor has it that the WT has all ready spent 100's of thousands of $$$ getting this one seemingly "worthless" case terminated. At the setelment hearing the defendents admitted to having racked up $80K in legal fees so far and offered not to counter sue if the Plantiffs dropped the case. The Plantiffs called their bluff. Now, no counter suit has been filed. This should tell you somthing.
If I am inocent, and I have to spend $80K on a lawyer to prove it, you better belive I am going to counter sue for the $80K, but nothing from the WT! NOTHING!!!! What does that tell you????
