    Thank you and Greetings!

    Some of the newer board members/lurkers may not be familiar with some of your work from the past.

    Your post history reveals a deep and varied collection of topics.

    Hope you and yours are well!

    Shocking that C T Russell would be involved in a commercialized and corrupt fraud, its so unlike him.

    This was a Supreme Court case? Why? Did the parties not agree with lower court rulings?

    Just in response to Anders's questions:

    There were no lower court rulings. Typically in a common law legal system, such as USA, civil cases where the amount claimed is above a certain level will be heard by a trial division of the Supreme Court. Any appeal will then go to the appellate division of the same Supreme Court (typically 3 judges).

    I recall that Anders lives in a country which has a civil law system, not a common law system. Typically in civil law countries, the equivalent of the Supreme Court only hears appeals.

    Just as a general note to anyone put off by the prospect of reading 400+ pages, there is a citation summary in the last 4 pages. In short, Russell sued the newspaper for defamation, lost at trial, appealed on a point of law, and lost again.

    Thanks for your clarification. I just read up on (some of) the differences between common and civil law. Never realized those!
