    Stanton proves as evil as Hesse.
    So now, after 3 years of class action litigation and the lawyers get paid, Cl A shareholders get an additional $.43/ share (or something like that) in 5 years?!
    What an ignominious finish -- green eyeshades trumps the visionaries!

     

    Headcoach, where are you?

    *sigh*, it just seems like Clearwire had too much debt and didn't want to auction off their spectrum to unwilling buyers. I guess this just happens sometimes...cue the lawyers who will sue on behalf of CLWR shareholders.

    This agreement needs to be investigated.

    Now what will happen? Will we get equal shares of Sprint at $2.97 or cashed out?

    And what other result could there be? S owns 49% the largest share holder. Who else would step in to that mess?
