He seems to be up for it, so it should be an interesting fight. Of course, these sorts of cases unwind slowly, and it will probably be a few years before we see the outcome, but maybe he’s finally feeling a little of the discomfort he’s inflicted on so many others. Or maybe he sees this as his ticket to riches. But this is like fist-fighting an elephant for its tusks. Yeah, that would be a pretty sweet prize, I guess. If you’re a jerk. And if you live.
