    This is a great article Gina. As a former journalist myself, it is always difficult to write an article with limited soundbites from one side of the story. While I understand from your article you were not given comments from the Daugherty side. Having followed this story closing, I know that his legal team many times does not comment (rarely do the Wyndham lawyers either)...but unlike the Wyndham case, you have Daugherty himself who will always contribute to your story with comments. I urge you to call him directly next time you want a comment to add to your article. That said, again, great article, I heard Daugherty‘s team loved it.
