    It takes some time to set something like this up, so the specific court case was not a factor, I think. However, its that type of legal environment (as was kinda noted in the press release) that likely is the major reason for this.

    The Remington suit started in 2014, so 5 years to plan the split?

    I was thinking the same thing. If this means the IL is gone I'm all for it.
