    I take no position on the litigation. I do object to the New York Law Journal headlining that the plaintiff received only $111 of the settlement when buried in the body of the article (which most busy practitioners haven't the time to review) it is acknowledged that plaintiff was advanced a non-refundable $27,000. Is this fair?
