Joe: If they were willing to for fit $12 mill and be thrown out of court in order for Losch not to take the stand there is no way in hell ol Jeffers is going to take the stand either.
I think that redress amounts in Australia for the JW victims are going to exceed that amount by quite a bit.
If each victim gets only $100,000, the WTS share for 1500 victims (which is not unreasonable - many will come forward or be revealed, and there are multiple victims in many of the cases), that would work out to a $150 million claim against the WTS. That amount is low. It will probably be higher.
I believe the $100,000 claim per victim to be reasonable based on the payouts established for Residential School Survivors in Canada. And that doesn't account for what civil cases will award to victims.
