I have received requests to provide information concerning the model aircraft litigations pending against the FAA that are of public interest (Pirker and EquuSearch). I'm happy to provide non-confidential information here for the benefit of the RC community, but I will not litigate the case or engage in debate on the issues that are pending. I will not discuss litigation strategy. I may occasionally provide a personal opinion on a related point, but that is all it is: a personal opinion. None of these posts should be construed as legal advice. If you plan to engage in an activity that may be regulated, you must consult your own attorney.
