Thanks for staying in such a long fight and never giving up. Sometimes you win, sometimes you come to a draw. IANAL but my understanding is that Nordyke ended in a draw basically? I wish you could have recovered your fees.
Everyone, this is why the gun rights orgs need our $$$. Sometimes there's a big pay-out at the end to cover all the fees, and sometimes there isn't, and these things are never completely predictable. The attorneys in this fight (on our side) are not doing it for the money.
