Jamie et al.,
It's not about what is cheaper for ICANN at this junctue; it's about
maintaining ICANN's unaccountability. If Karl's suit fails, this will
basically send a strong signal to everyone critical of ICANN that the
organization in question is beyond the pale of law and order, and is
effectively autocratic. Such a message would go a long way towards
disheartening any meek opposition to the status quo.
