Re: Ashlee Shaner - Gold Base - Memorial Free File Hosting Made Simple - MediaFire This is the bulk of the Shaner litigation, which appears to have gone up on the Riverside County court system some time recently. The long and short. The contractors got the shaft, or at least their insurer did, to the max policy limits of $1,000,000 apiece, for $2,000,000 for the family over the course of a long payout period. The cult got off the hook with a nuisance value settlement of $10,000 by threatening to inundate the plaintiffs in a "blizzard" of frivolous motions. The reason they were driving the vehicles on the road, unlit, on the wrong side of the road, at night, with no warning lights or flagmen or anything, is that the dwarf was screaming and demanding the work be done immediately. Or, as they said, "Golden Era" was insisting. The lawyer representing the Shaners was probably correct about the economics of the situation in settling for a little over $2,000,000 and not doubling down to gamble on what would have probably cost $2,000,000 or so, and several years, to prosecute with no guarantee of victory. Disappointing but typical.
