I see evidence of plans, I'm not privy to all the details of them nor
should I be, but I know and trust the people we have put in place to know
and supervise such things. The Board of Trustees, I'm quite sure they would
not have invested $350,000 of member money investigating and following
through with the legal process without a plan. If you look back to last
October ARIN Staff alerted the community to issues, in the ARIN 42 Policy
Experience Report, they told us what they could at the time, but with
hindsight, it is quite clear now;

Furthermore, I see evidence of plans going back to at least 2009 when the
Board required Officer Attestation;

ARIN has invested at least 8 months if not longer in this case so far, and
I have confidence that there is more to the plan yet to come to fruition.
