NOTE: the article needs something corrected. Jim Nesfield, who represented the investors in the takeover of SLM after the bankruptcy, is the one spearheading the effort. Peter Paul is not part of the lawsuit. Marvel and Lee can claim all they want that there is no basis for the suit. The facts, however, suggest otherwise. Lee signed an agreement with SLM in Oct. 1998 before he signed virtually the same agreement with Marvel in Nov. 1998. The claim was never asserted in the SLM BK. Lee pulled properties out of the BK for his new company POW! without court approval and contrary to the court's order.

Looks like someone in the media thinks there is a lot of merit to the case. Does Hillary’s dropping out of the race mean her deposition can proceed prior to the election?

0.7%? Can’t imagine that has anything to do with news.
