oh i see what happened. We agree mostly. My apologies for misunderstanding your pointI don't believe Chupp thinks it isn't lawsuit worthy, otherwise yes he wouldn't bother, but I think he thinks that the issues are still small and petty enough that they can be resolved without one (or he wouldn't bother with attempting mediation at all, why do something that won't work?) Chupp does not understand the feelings of the parties at play here and is underestimating.
If I'm wrong though I wouldn't be the first person to make a mistake in judging Chupp's character, motives, and thoughts.
