What? Where? When? No, I am not and did not. YOU are the one who wrote:
My post stated clearly and unambiguously that the lawsuit was not a surprise. Also see my response above to Jed. How am I the one saying 'suddenly lawsuit'? Are you gaslighting me or was this post made during your "temporary" excursion into knucklehead territory?
Yes, you're right, it was not you, it was Roger who said "suddenly lawsuit", but I apparently was in knucklehead territory when I conflated your response to my comment on his original comment as coming from you.
I think I'm out of knucklehead territory now, but that's usually what everyone in there thinks even when they're still in there, so it's a good thing you guys are here to alert me.
So I actually had a couple of posts directed to you that I errantly believed were 'responding' to your comment that was actually from Roger. Sorry for the confusion.
Anyway, this is not a big point to me - I agree with you that there were several months of legal jousting from December 2015 through lawsuit commencement, and your summary of that including specific examples from the docket demonstrate that well. I do not think that IH thought that Rossi would preemptively sue them for a quarter billion dollars. But Roger's comment implied that IH's behavior was strange because they went from 'everything's working great (especially to investors)' to 'suddenly lawsuit', which doesn't fit my understanding of the docket timeline, showing a more gradual progression of relational deterioration, and also implies that IH was the originator of the lawsuit, which of course they were not.
So on this issue I think we actually kind of agree (and if we don't, it's 'small potatoes' to me).
