    My involvement in the case was fairly limited. I got the ball rolling with the initial filing, and also attempted to have a rational initial discussion with your advertiser, Marc Randazza. That discussion became… odd.

    But Jeff Johnson of the Arizona firm of Schmeiser, Olsen and Watts, and his crew, did all of the heavy lifting to move this into the end zone.
