Oh, it's done alright. Finished. Finito. Game Over. You lose. What a great Christmas present.
I and my fellow plaintiffs received word yesterday that the State Court of Appeals had released their decision: The decision of judgment in our favor in Superior Court against the idiot developer of the ongoing lawsuit has been affirmed! We win! After a small victory earlier, I had developed an attitude that, though I was always confident we would prevail, the justice system is certainly slow in how it goes about affirming so.
Now, Mr. Bright Guy has always told anyone that would listen to him that he was right and that he would prevail on all counts. The COA obviously didn't agree and ripped apart his case by including a description of his arguments as "nonsensical" and referring to the CCR's as "certainly... not a model of clarity". I guess this would best be described as "overplaying one's hand".
Now, I and my fellow plaintiffs are revved up. The bastard still owes us over $75K. And, of course, it will be a fight to get it which will only benefit Shifty, our lawyer. At this point, however, I don't really care. The money has been long gone and forgotten. I am still surviving and I know I won't get all of our money back, but, we certainly are going to get some of it. And it feels good. Really good.
