Two million was the figure Rosen used before the bankruptcy court, but that was a year ago, on Sept 13, 2000. That meant they had spent at least $800k on the bankruptcy at that time. I am sure the figure for the bankruptcy case is well over a million by now. Of course the figure could be much higher. Last summer they had a team of PIs in Tucson, and even Gene Ingram on the job on the east coast. Given what they have spent on other cases, the total could well be $3 million or even more. Incidentally, my lawyers think there is no president for the court to curb abuse of an opponent who is willing to spend 10 or 100 dollars to cost you one. The same tactics were used in the tobacco wars in an attempt to break the anti tobacco forces. It will either take a judge who is willing to extend the court rules against abuse of process to cover these rare but spectacular abuses or the legislature will have to step into the breach.
