Following Ceri's lead here, I agree that an outcome is very unpredictable
at this time. Although, I'm wondering how plausable it is to "attack"
something that happened almost ten years ago. I could see that happening
if it was "unjust", but what merits "unjust" in a lawsuit of this kind?
I'm not a law student, or anything else but I had to give an opinion.
