    I hope you guys are able to get the case dismissed or win it and have Burkhart pay for your legal fees. Seems like a completely frivolous lawsuit.

    So, she agreed to step down from the board and in exchange they would drop their lawsuit against her?

      no. the lawsuit was filed long after she stepped down.

      Dan, how on earth do you come to that conclusion? That would be blackmail.

        Sorry, watch too much TV. Still haven’t seen an explanation for her stepping down

    Why did the judge step away? Just curious. Been following, but have no feeling either way.
