Defending even a frivolous law suit can be very expensive, and the SGU and Dr. Novella would like to thank everyone who contributed to our legal defense fund. The total cost of the case was many times the amount of donations, but it was still critical to keeping our defense going.
We will be recovering some of our fees in the case. The exact amount we recover remains to be seen, and we will keep you updated. We hope to recover enough that we can create a legal defense fund to help shield the SGU and SBM from future threats of suit.
For now we are closing the legal defense fund. However, if you wish to support the SGU and all our activities you can do so by becoming a member.
