way; you and I and Roost and mabey scuba need to get
together somdeday and talk about the wood business. We do
it right were gonna need a bean counter. My soninlaw
wants to move our business into a location with a store
front. I'm not sure; thinking internet might be a better
marketing method. Whattaya think.
On the trail home.
Had to put out a fire. Canadian lawyer tried to do it
herself instead of hiring competent US counsel. Long
story; but gonna take at least three months to clean up
the mess and she is sitting up there with her clients
teeth marks all up and down her backside.
is this freak from area code 212? We have seen a
couple of misogamists on this board before. Probably all
the same guy. The pitiful little SOB has horribly
bashed every woman who has ever tried to post on this
board. My guess is his mother put him down so often, for
his childhood failures, that he's permanetly scarred
and just lost. He is probably married to huge woman,
who knows she has nothing to fear from him and laughs
in his face every night, which only drives up his
Anyway, later, hardrock,
actually have nothing to say for or against tyco
one way or the other. Just wanted to correct what I
saw as misperceptions about the lawsuit. In the long
run, the lawsuit most likely will not have any
material effect on Tyco, that is unless for some reason
the evidence of egregious behavior is much stronger
than indicated at this time.
If Tyco stole propietary information from GBLX
and is using it on its own behalf or gave it to GBLX
competitors, than the economic damages, i.e., the lost profits
to GBLX projected into the future could be huge. How
much,I have no idea, but that is why economists,
accountants and acturaries are called as experts at trial.
Unless you are talking about property damage, there is
rarely a "clearly definable damage" amount. That's what
trials are often about, to have the jury delineate from
the evidence what the damages truly are. As for
punitive damages, I have not reviewed the statutes or
jurisprudence in this area, but my guess would be that punitive
damages would be applicable in a case where one company
stole another companies propietary information and used
it for its own purposes. It is precisely the threat
of a huge punitive damage award that will likely
result in a large settlement.
see you on may 22, 2002 - 2 years from date of
lawsuit. a good anniversary to use, imo.
tyc was at 44,
gblx was at 28.02. tyc is ahead so far, but like you
said, it's only been a few days.
i'm sure that
oversized brain of yours won't forget.
get it! So what if TYC did something wrong. Who
cares? Damages are based on actual losses, and what,
praytell, are GBLX actual losses? If GBLX wanted to really
get some money out of a suit they would wait until
they have a clearly defineable damge claim, right? But
they didn't wait. They filed suit anyway. Why? Now
think about why GBLX would file a suit for a
trillion-billion, knowing they really don't have any clearly
defineable damages. If you can answer this correctly, you
have matured today. Oh, and don't hipe the punative
thing because punative damages rarely ever apply in a
case like this. If you reply and say "Yes they do",
then you are either ignorant or you have another
agenda. Get it?
thing over a decade ago, until Pennzoil cleaned
its clock for a judgment of 12,000,000,000 dollars,
forcing Texaco into bankruptcy. Its a shame we can't
access Texaco's denial of the charges back then. I can
just imagine, "pennzoil's suit is frivolous and simply
a nuisance, filed because it doesn't want to pay
