Wow! Putting the maximum possible settlement of a questionable lawsuit on the books at full valuation. If that isn't criminal fraud, then criminal fraud doesn't exist.

Relatedly - it's interesting how the bloviators rail against adjusting the principal or interest rates of a home mortgage in the course of bankruptcy as violating a sacred contract, but cheer when a corporation (e.g. Delta Airlines, United Airlines) takes bankruptcy specifically to void a contract with its employees.

Contracts are sacred when they serve the masters. He who has the gold makes the rules.

Sometimes it doesn't feel so bad being within 4 years of the allotted 3 score and 10.
