One of the annoying things about dealing with litigious customers in the financial services business is that the broker is actually often enough the victim a reasonable proportion of the time. Thus while it is easy to settle when you are plausibly in the wrong you find yourself been asked to settle when you are completely in the right. Yet there is another party at the table there. It is the regulator who presumes guilt when there are law suits been pursued by the company. You become aware that numbers are a double edged sword.
Thus the Donald could easily have 4000 lawsuits in his development business. Had his business been financial services, he would have been shut down even if he was completely innocent. Around an education style business it also becomes problematic.
Good to see the end of it and settling was the best out there. It was obviously no winner.
