Okay. I admit it's been a very busy week for me, and I haven't spent as much time on the Roundup as usual. However, that being said, I have trolled all my typical sources of information. It just seems to be a slow week. Perhaps the Olympics are to blame. In any event, I'm outsourcing this week's Roundup. If you have information to contribute, send it in. I'll get the word out about your interesting new suit, appeal, settlement, etc.
