Re: Status of Dinosaur Society
Mary, et al:
Firstly, my appologies for mispelling Don's last name - it should be
Due to some sort of legal dispute over a screwed-up Jurassic Park
exhibit, the Society sued Don Lessem (I think - someone please correct me if
I have the story wrong!!!!) - I believe they won some $60K, but were
immediately countersued by him for $100K. Until this mess is more
straightened out, I don't think Don Wolberg will be trying to do musch with
the Society for now.
If I have gotten the story wrong, someone please correct me - I mean
no-one any harm in what I am sending here - no offense is intended.
Also, I think Nathan is in Russia, Mary. (Although he may be back....)
