Everyone at imPaneled apologizes to the many of you who have been lying awake at night wondering when you might see another post here. We feel your pain, as reporting the ups, downs and wacky antics of the world of class actions and complex litigation is always more fun than anything for which we might actually get paid. But that pesky need to get paid is perpetually the bane of imPaneled’s existence.
As to that, the boss here is now getting paid directly by clients (details on the right), rather than by other lawyers. That’s generally a good thing. But it required time to put in place–which explains the recent silence–and will require that imPaneled stay friendly with the rest of the world if it is to succeed. We at imPaneled have been known to be a mite opinionated, online and offline, and will not have it any other way. That, however, is not conducive to staying friendly with the rest of the world.
So imPaneled will be lying low for a bit longer. If all goes well, it won’t be long until we’re swimming in so much cash that we can afford to offend anyone and everyone who deserves it. On that note, here’s one for the road: A curse on anyone who files a frivolous lawsuit. As we have said elsewhere, they waste our courts’ resources, discredit the plaintiffs’ bar, and provoke further restrictions on legitimate cases.
That’s it for now. If you want more of the same sooner rather than later, follow the advice of the legendary Soupy Sales: Put those “funny green pieces of paper with pictures of U.S. Presidents . . . in an envelope and mail them to me.” Barring that, we’ll be content with just your good wishes.
