I am not so confident that the shyster in robes cares about justice and is capable of understanding how this really occurred.
We're talking about a justice system where the (unofficial) national pastime is to sue someone. There are more lawyers than accountants out there. Even a half-cooked, half-stoned/drunk ilk can make his/her mark by just suing something this big.
`tis too easy to win. Imagine this: Staff wrongfully blamed for breaches. Independent report shows the breach was caused by a certificate issue which no one wants to take ownership to update. Blame-game is the topic of the day. Oh wait, I don't like your tie. You're "it"!
Equitrax will do anything just to get this sorted quickly. Out-of-court-settlement is bound to happen.
