  1. Several things: 1. What do you mean by real? 2. How much good money is thrown after bad to accomplish the task? Is it a moral imperative or a legal and pragmatic exercise? 3. Are the judges looking more at the attorney and claims aggregators or the substance of the claims? In this stage, the former me thinks. Remember, this is a preemptory investigation, not necessarily the vetting and scrutiny that happens once a claim passes through the initial decontamination process. 4. I may not know what I'm talking about. Apply this truth liberally to the answers and questions above.
  2. I bought everything on layaway that cost any real money. The super big deal trifecta was my Jansport Mountain Dome, Camp 7 down bag and Hine Snowbridge pack. That was also 1976, based on the fact that is the inception year of my REI membership. Ok. I'm done deviating from the straight and narrow topic.
  3. I mean no one ill in this process, but I do hope there is a reasonable separation of chaff and grain. It's worth noting (again) that JLSS not only directed Judge Houser to craft the processes and metrics for investigation but ALSO said she (JLSS) wants to see and approve them once JH drafts them. That says huge ton.
  4. For context: * The Aspen Institute’s study showed that parents with a child in ice hockey spent on average $2,583 per year in 2019. * After the gear comes lessons, lift tickets and the cost of getting to and from the mountain. Skiing and snowboarding costs about $2,250 per child in 2019. * Gymnastics $1200 * Lacrosse $1200 * Tennis $1200 * Flag Football (lowest at) $270
  5. As well as the number of claims left standing after the JLSS-mandated investigation, ferreting and vetting.
  6. Is that an inflation-adjusted estimate? I need to know how long to make the layaway term for the purchase of my new pair of Red Ball Jets.
  7. Abuse that occurs after emergence (and Phoenix rising) is new liability with no release protection from the bankruptcy. Also, “claim values” will be referenced in future cases, which is one of the reasons insurers hate that matrix.
  8. Looking backward, no. Forward, yes. Historical liabilities are released by the emergence and Phoenix rising.

  10. What is the typical attendance/use of the HABs by location?
  11. I was 99% sure about something once. That being, I'm wrong about 99% of the time.
  12. Ja. What was the longest hearing we've had to date? 7PM ET or so? Why did BSA proposed Wed? We had multiple hours today AND the mediation parties previously fell all over themselves (and each) lauding their their herculean endurance skills. I'm sure we recall with deep reverence when they labored through the night while [*gasp*] the Super Bowl was being played. I'm shocked beyond recovery. Someone please bring me my fan and spirits of ammonia. Right quick...
  13. By way of court color commentary, we've already had three recesses. One was because the judge had no Zoom feed. Another because we were exceeding online capacity. People were being dropped and/or denied access. Mid-morning, the number of Zoom attendees capped out the 1000 mark and they had to upgrade. The third recess was due to the attorney then appearing and speaking had a hiccup attack. To this humble reporter, the poor fella seemed on the verge of being sick. This post is intended as a substantive process report for those unable to attend this important proceeding.
  14. Yes. The Coalition to the tune of 20M claims. One of the Coalition principals is front row, center in court today.
  15. I would love to see the breakdown by firm. That's a lot o' photocopies...
  16. She only deferred to a future motion and hearing, having preserved any objections. If the plan is finally blessed, that money will land in the Settlement Trust.
  17. Question for our faithful and vigilant fee checker: What be the current damages from professional fees billed to the Estate? As always, I am grateful. /s/ Iman Arithmaticfailure
  18. So I’m sure I understand your ponderings, by “under the carpet” and “deflected” you’re referring to the concealment theme that started our conversation? Thanks.
  19. My SM abuser was in the Army National Guard. He borrowed vehicle for our campouts. He took me there many times...
  20. "Opt out CO" is not a different "CO type." It's a term of status/treatment under the plan and it drives whether key provisions apply or not.
  21. "Hello. Um, yeah. This is ___________ your non-CSA expert non-tort and non-bankruptcy lawyer who hired an aggregator and call center to fetch me some BSA claimants. Uh huh. Yes. I know you haven't heard from me since the case was filed, but I was busy with 25 slip and falls, a ton of evictions, 6 domestic disputes and a couple hundred DUIs. So, about that claim of yours. It's taken a really really really long time and I know it's been very rough. In light of the judge's ruling on Friday and some complicated matters she's addressed, my partner and I have spent two minutes thinking about your ca
