I have followed this thread from day one and sure hope that Homer gets his money soon.
To the impatient ones: this is strictly his business how he handles it and he is not obligated to put closure to it simply because some of us may be tired of same old info with no new developments. I am sure he would love to be done with it long time ago but if he was advised by his lawyer friend that this is the way to do it why do some of us feel the need to push him into a legal action?
He is patiently waiting as per advice he got, doesn't post with nonsense and its just other forum members inquiring.
I am not a lawyer but as someone has mentioned earlier suing them may not give him the proper closure he is looking for (payment in full) anyways.
Let's leave the poor guy alone and let him handle it the way he sees fit.
