If I recall correctly, the school was to be built for $8 MM. A whole school. Now where did $4.5 MM go? Exclusively to lawyers, no? How many lawyers? I would be interested in viewing a spreadsheet where on one side we have where the $4.5 MM was spent with a breakdown of lawyer details, how many, what hours they worked, and what each did to contribute to the lawsuit; and on the other side where $8 MM would have gone, to material suppliers, contractors, and tradesmen who actually would have built the school.

Doesn't seem to add up, doesn't it?

Its the government, nothing ever gets done right.. We already have enough schools, the problem is not building more schools, but keeping people out. WE'RE FULL!
