NOTES
1
As part of our research on this litigation, we interviewed the primary plaintiffs' attorney. We contacted the defendants' attorneys, and through them the defendants, but were not able to interview representatives from either. We contacted the judges involved in this case but they declined to be interviewed because of concerns over pending motions in the matter. We also reviewed the pleadings and papers filed in the case as well as other documents including newspaper and magazine articles, law review articles, and press releases.
