Retweet regarding the case here with the is the attorney with us by the way full disclosure, his partner Lynwood. I have recently retained as one of my personal lawyers. I consider you guys the best in the business tell us about this case. In particular. Thank you for having me on this case with CNN and the retweet that came out recently talking about the settlement or characterizing. The settlement, I think, was a big mistake on Cnns part. I dont think he should have been commenting on it. I think it showed poor judgment on his behalf to do so. Clearly, he doesnt have any ideas. What the terms of the settlement are yet showed some poor judgment and commenting on it, not knowing what he was talking about sure didnt mean to interrupt you, ive known him since the rich jewel case. I was in Atlanta. In that case, one of the few people that
didnt rush to judgment taught me a valuable lesson in my career im honored that he has been able to retain him. As my own personal attorney, he is great at what he does. I know one thing about Lynwood is instead of saying its a nominal sum. I dont believe that for a second I know you cant disclose it, but I know Lynwood, he wouldnt settle for a nominal sum ever under any circumstances, do you think I might be in the right and my over the target. As you said, cant really comment and we did agree not to characterize the settlement, but I know he is a fabulous lawyer and he does great work and its a pleasure to work with him on these cases. What they did to this young man he handled. All of this perfectly is unconscionable the difference between me and this young man is hes, not a public figure. This is more of a slam dunk case and I believe this kid might even be a billionaire when all.
