Without being a lawyer I am very sure that any German court will reject 
such a sue because the court is not responsible (german: nicht 
zuständig). The accusation is not conducted in Germany and neither party 
is a legal person registered in Germany or German citizen.

I am quite sure that there will be post mortems on the event, both in 
the community as well as in the board. My hope is that the most 
important thing is we endly move forward, and if there were damages done 
they get corrected again.
