Luckyloop:   Strange, if, no lawsuits are being filed !

What do ordinary attorneys get per hour these days?  How much would they need up front to take this case on? What would the plaintiff be likely to get if he won the suit?  Is this likely to be a winning proposition, meaning that will you come out ahead even if you win? Was their fine print in the contract that protected the venue owner?  The tournament organizer, who its seems would have the most standing to file a suit, lives in Iowa, and the owner of the venue is in California.  So he would probably need to find a Cali attorney to deal with this.  So actually it's not strange at all that no lawsuit has been filed.  Not if you think about it for a few seconds.

An attorney might take a case like that on a contingency basis, percentage like 33-50% if they think they can win. CA is a sue happy state with vulture like attorneys and high rewards for winning. Once the organizer wins his case, the legal system would be sympathetic to players traveling in a class action litigation for their rights too.

If no legal action, can someone with behind the scenes politics potentially shut down any small TT tournament (maybe larger too) in the USA, sabotaging the sport ?
