  • The Legal Beagle

    It takes some significant intestinal fortitude to do what young Al Flora is doing. I congratulate him on his courage and his planning for this lawsuit. It is a fine stroke of lawyering to institute the Preliminary Injunction action against his firing at the same time as the principal lawsuit on funding. Obviously, the Cannons are a great ally in these types of situations, and we wish you the very best.
