    I'm surprised Johnathan Lane hasn't started a "Alec Peters Legal Defense" on any crowdfund platform yet.

    Actually Lane is a fairly okay guy when it doesn't concern AP. I guess he can't see that all goes away when he stumps for that guy. So I have to ask. What exactly was in that sushi?

    Apropos of nothing, I was just going through some of the Roddenberry documents and I discovered the following in a September 10, 1968 report by de Forest Research on "Whom Gods Destroy":

    Garth . . . . No conflicts. Source name for character: Thomas Garth, 1872-1939.​

    Who was this guy (link)

    Then further this...

    Garth of Titan — Titan is the name of Saturn’s largest moon. By Star Trek time, 200 years in future, our solar system will be suburbia. Is this meant to indicate that Garth comes from Titan? If meant to indicate an exploit, suggest: Garth of Izar.

    The Titans are destined to be the Master race — See note for 2/5. Suggest: Izarians.​

    So Izar could have meant an "exploit", and certainly a race, but not necessarily a planet. Some other tidbits...

    The Titans are peace-loving members of the Federation — See above.

    Axanar — Provided by Research. Mentioned in Court Martial​

    So apparently, de Forest's researcher coined the name.

    Axanar...Peace Mission — See above. Kirk holds a service decoration: Palm Leaf of Axanar Peace Mission.
    Oh, and Garth's first name is Aloysius.





    I kid. ;)

    Two points about the first new case.

    1) Peters owes $26,000 in attorneys fees? After this long!? Why hasn't said attorney not chased after this?

    2) Does the purchasing of the DeBord judgement by Armstrong means she essentially paid him what he was owed to chase it in court herself?

    My non legal trained mind is confused! :)

    Welcome to Civil tort law (it's why Civil Attorney's try like hell to ONLY take cases they believe are winnable and make agreements to take their fees from the Judgement). However attorney's will weigh whether time spent in pursuing said fees will be worth it as opposed to just moving on to another case with a better chance of ROI.

    It means: She gave the person who has the Judgement (in Civil cases the Plaintiff may indeed receive a Judgement, but it's up to the Plaintiff to 'collect' IE said Plaintiff can now legally file garnishments/liens, etc; but that takes time and more money to FIND sources of income to garnish, properties to file liens against, etc.) a lump sum of money (some percentage of said Judgement); and now she has full rights to go after the whole thing.

    ^^^
    Yeah, the collection side is something most TV shows/films don't get into because it would make the ending depressing. Yes, he/she received a multi-million dollar judgement; but were they to show how it usually plays out, an entity who has the Judgement suddenly declares bankruptcy, or has been liquidating assets all through the proceedings and has nothing left to garnish, or put a lien against and starts doing everything in cash, etc.

    @Noname Given

    1) Got it. Although I find that depressing. Yes, some attorneys might be rich and some not so, but that figure is a full years wage to some people!

    2) So not the full figure. Got it. :techman:

    :wtf:
    "It's gotta be Axanar quality," AP told him, "It costs what it costs. People will accept that."
    :wtf:
    AXANAR DOESN'T FUCKING EXIST YET!!! There's no way to gauge the quality of a film that DOESN'T FUCKING EXIST YET! Which means there's no way to use it's quality as a standard to measure up to, because IT DOESN'T FUCKING EXIST YET!

    There aren't enough faces and palms in the world to facepalm this level of bullshit.
