  •  The easiest way to make this not about money (0+ / 0-)

    Which, I believe the Telcoms have rejected, is to enact a damages cap.  Very easy to do.  Gets the information out.  Gets an adjudication of the liability question, but doesn't kill the telcos.

    Or to have the gov't stand in to indemnify the telcos.

    Lots of easy ways out if this is about money.

    Which is one of the reasons that it's clearly about the information concerning the extent of the law-breaking that is at issue, not the damages arising from it.
