    • Just for a comparison, if the documents originated about 10-points, now at 4 per page, they are 2 point font.  The SEC requires all printed prospectuses to go out at 10-point with some allowances to go as low as 8 point.  I question how this was allowed.  Again, if you are going to print and mail a document, make it readable.  Printing 2 point font and sending it out is nearly worthless.  I expect most will probably either ignore and just vote or go to the webpage.  However, there are many that do want to read paper.  The judge swung and missed.  I wonder if the US Trustee is fuming... https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/17/230.420#:~:text=(a) The body of all,as 10-point modern type.  
    • Yes. It’s ridiculous. I don’t know about “who approved,” but BSA’s lead counsel, Jessica Lauria, was self-congratulatory trumpeting this feat of font compression (suppression?) in the name of cost and tree saving. Her note of it was followed by a plea for all of us to recycle. I’m old school and I need paper to hold, scribble on and go back to for easy reference. I’ve said this to others recently, and we all know this, but this entire bankruptcy construct is horrible for a mass tort case. This is just one more illustration.
    • We received a packet and the print is excessively small. It is multiple pages fit on one page.  My first thought, and I blame this on being extremely skeptical in general, is that it’s a “they won’t read the fine print and just go off what we tell them it says” situation. The Army taught me to never sign anything I can’t read, or understand, so pulling up the online is definitely my go to. I can’t imagine the frustration survivors might have. 
    • Many claimants are reporting to have received the packet.  I have seen some complaints that the print out is 4 pages per page.  Some are stating that it is nearly impossible to actually read the documents that went out. Edit: Note that the reports I have seen are from Twitter so those individuals are probably tech savy enough to find the documents online.  I think the concern is that those who are not tech savy may to be able to actually read the documents.  I wonder who approved printing 4 pages on a single page.  At some point, why even send out paper?
