Re: Dodging the accusation

AMI's lawyer appears to have followed correct legal procedure to just barely avoid a criminal charge of extortion

Opinions differ about that as far as I can tell. NY State also has conditions related to coercion, and they are far broader defined than the federal laws that were reviewed earlier.

That said, the only thing always guaranteed in this game is that a lawyer will make money. The rest remains a gamble.
