Sorry that I didn't see this before now, I no longer follow LTC or the forums, but was just looking up our friend again.
I was one of the Plaintiffs, and we ended up abandoning the lawsuit when our legal fees were getting too large. We also came to the determination, right or wrong, that it was unlikely that we'd be able to collect from Jason.
He did agree via email to pay back our money in installments, but then never responded when the legal agreement was drawn up. We expended a lot of energy to make him accountable, but not a lot of others did the same. In the end we added thousands to the losses already incurred for the lawsuit. I hope things have gotten better for everyone..
