BTW, prior bad acts isn't suppressed in a civil suit, so the judgement against the AIFL can be used against them (and further strengthen a breach of contract defense against the AIFL).
In most states, the plaintiff can be ordered to pay damages and legal fees for a nuisance suit, so Haines is taking a big risk on this one.
To paraphrase Alec Baldwin in "Glengarry Glen Ross," maybe Haines better just sit back over his drink and say, "I was in sports league management once. It's a tough racket."

I have to wonder if indoor football wasn't thought up by a group of lawyers. It's turning into a wonderful income generator for them.
More seriously the lawsuits are more about ego then anything else. As soon as the peons realize their needs are subservient to the wants of AH and CS the lawsuits will end.
