The owner has rejected both offers from Parker, one which is more than generous. Do you think they would skimp on lawyer costs if this guy tries to take them to court? He would be up for their costs...

Parker seem to be bending over backward to help this guy, but he seems to want to cut off his nose to spite his face. He needs to calm down and accept one of their solutions. I think the biggest...
