Maybe this is why they take 90 days or more to pay for an appraisal. I got my last payment from them and told them to remove me from there list of appraisers. MY CREDITORS expect MONTLY payments...as in 30 days. I expect the same from those I do appraisals for.

Is 30 days not the accepted, normal and typical time frame in our economy?

After reading that article, it sounds like the plaintiff's award would be lunch money for a 2.4 billlion dollar business.

I don't see how that is going to discourage many crooks. I figure; Steal an idea that allows you to start a 2.4 billion dollar business. Pay out an award of 274 million for your theft and then go on about your 2.4 business in the future and pocket the profits.

A better award would be for them to surrender their stolen business to the plaintiff and then all of their upper management get fines that would financially break them. That would be real justice but we will never see real justice against todays robber barons.
