Settle? They'da been goners



Independent stock-watcher Todd Sullivan:

Had the lead paint defendants even broached the word "settlement," an avalanche of suits would have followed that would have bankrupted them. I have no doubt about that. The ferocity of their fight has essentially discouraged additional suits being filed and has lead to several localities dropping suits.

-- from an interview ("Litigation risk and shareholder value") at Jane Genova's Law and More.
