Tim Mellon,
I don't think anyone has asked the obvious question:  What do you want to drop this whole issue?

In private discussions through the attorneys Tim did outline his conditions for dropping the lawsuit.  We found them unacceptable.

Quote
“Vexatious litigation is legal action which is brought, regardless of its merits, solely to harass or subdue an adversary. It may take the form of a primary frivolous lawsuit or may be the repetitive, burdensome, and unwarranted filing of meritless motions in a matter which is otherwise a meritorious cause of action.”

With the exorbitant cost of legal representation the only winners in these types of case are the lawyers!

LTM,

The exorbitant cost of legal representation is what prevents the system from being abused as an instrument of petty ego gratification - except when exorbitant wealth trumps exorbitant cost.

You can tell us about it at the victory barbecue.

Where do we stand $ wise?

I thought you'd never ask.  ::)

We currently owe the attorneys about $10,000.  Depositions coming up soon but no firm date set yet.  Should be interesting, but it will run up the bill.
Plaintiff’s Expert Disclosure Deadline is this Friday, February 28.  We should soon know who (besides the Plaintiff) sees clearly identifiable wreckage from Amelia's plane in the 2010 ROV video.

I'm hoping that at that point, the names of the other side's experts will become public record, and their qualifications can then be assessed?

Ric,
Why, if charges are dismissed, can Tighar not counter sue to recover ALL legal fees?

Not worth the bucket of warm spit it would cost us to file the papers.

My opinion.

I am looking forward to learning who these experts are.  It is an oddity in the extreme to me that no one among the public-at-large in all this time has emerged with a 'can't you see it - dead people and airplane stuff' eureka moment for us all, given that credible experts supposedly can so readily discern what others are negligent for having not seen...  ???

Or were criminal for having opted to hide...  8)

I really want to see what these experts have to say that can make such a clear case that the public - including presumably a judge and perhaps a jury can't miss Earhart's plane among the sea-bottom clutter.
