No - Rossi was the trigger for IH. Rossi did well out of it, IH did well out of it, Darden got his $10M back plus a lot more and the only ones who paid were Woodford's investors. And who persuaded Woodford to invest?? Rossi, or IH>
And again, there is progress in spite of Rossi, not because of him. Over $15 million was spent to show that Rossi has absolutely nothing of value, and even after that, people still drink the Rossi Kool Aid.
