In any event — after yesterday’s 93 page opinion, we all know where this is going. And Marty’s self serving filing comes decidedly too late, to change that. Some chunks of the 300 pages simply make me want to retch — at the lies — primarily about his actually having created life saving drugs, himself. Ugh.
