Re: Time Wasted = Billable Hours
Rabinowitz isn't a US brief, he's part of a well respected commercial law firm in the UK - if there's a problem in that regard it would be being directed by a US brief rather than the in court thing. Also if HP think they can have somebody extradited over a civil claim (and I've seen no evidence they think that) they're out of their minds. Not gonna happen.
The smart thing to do if they wanted somebody to prosecute would have gone after their former board for not doing due diligence and I'd draw attention to HP's out of court settlement to back that up.
