From Wampum (new and improved!), a debunking of the myth that the Cobell plaintiffs were offered $7 billion to settle the case and rejected it, the implication being they got what they deserved for being greedy. Never happened. The government never offered a dime to resolve the Cobell suit. And now you know. Also, Cobell is definitely appealing. I wish them luck, of course, but unless Obama wins and appoints one or two new justices before this hits the Supreme Court, I won't be holding my breath.
