Ironic coincidence: Tribune Cancels Little Orphan Annie After 86 Years
I didn't lose the case, I merely backed out and on the way out the "stipulation" required by Google was to allow Chad to sign a sworn declaration. If I didn't drop out by May 17, 2010, Google would have moved to impose sanctions (fines) on my attorneys. My attorneys were attempting to withdraw as counsel, so that would have left only one attorney - myself - to absorb whatever costs. Without counsel and $100000 to complete discovery, I could not proceed. While some of my legal team wanted to continue forward, I was dealing with so much noise in my life that it made focusing on the case almost impossible given the circumstances. Google should have sought the truth, but their legal team was just there to bully us.
