    Did they always use that slogan about the strong tree?

    It reminds me of the marketing playbook of sports teams whereby they try to give extra ways to overtly point out who is a season ticket holder (STH), so that that individual (presumably with low self-esteem) will feel important or more worth, thus more likely to renew (or attract other potential buyers who also want to be overtly known and viewed as a STH). So teams now give the STH these lanyards that they wear around their neck, or other obvious things to identify who is/isnt a STH, which serve no purpose other than to instantly identify the person as a STH.

    The investors say state officials with the Vermont EB-5 Regional Center, who were responsible for overseeing Jay Peak, never took action to investigate allegations about the so-called “finders fees,” which were brought to their attention in 2012.
    ROFL.

    Is that Brent Raymond guy still employed at Mount Snow? If so, and I'm SKIS brass, I look for a real quiet way to lay him off, thank him for his service, and say, good luck in your future endeavors.

    Megan Shafritz, the lead lawyer for the state, has said Vermont officials have “absolute immunity” in the case, which protects them “from the burdens of discovery and litigation generally.”
    Life sure must be nice when you control all the rifles & bayonets.

    Unless the court allows discovery, Barr says, the truth will never come out about how state officials allowed Stenger and Jay Peak owner Ariel Quiros to defraud 890 EB-5 investors and ultimately helped to cover up the fraud.
    Oh.....so basically discovery will not be allowed probably. LOL

    Gov. Phil Scott says he has not ruled out whether there should be a special prosecutor to look into alleged EB-5 fraud in the Northeast Kingdom involving Jay Peak and related companies.
    Would the special prosecutor be a guy from Vermont with a degree in 15th Century Greek Philosophy, or an actual real-life lawyer?

    Important question given the Vermont EB-5 Regional Center was run by people without any backgrounds necessary for high level auditing/accounting/finance jobs.

    Actually....someone can take the Bar in Vermont "Abe Lincoln" style without a law degree. So sure they just would need to be admitted 😜

    I didn't know that was a 21st century thing.

    What would you ballpark the odds are of a fairly smart guy/gal spending a few thousand dollars on books, investing some time, and passing the bar DIY-style; pretty low?
