I understand the situation. What can I answer for you in regards ***** *****?
This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
Thank you for your reply.
It is up to them whether or not to file suit. They can technically even file on now. They may be more interested in the actual manufactorer than the distributor (i.e. you). However, they can still file suit, and may do so if someone in your situation stops cooperating (so as to get the information via subpoena which is only available as part of a suit).
The best way to resolve this is to retain counsel, and agree to a settlement with them, possibly in providing them with all the information one has but only if they agree in writing to waive their ability to sue and never to pursue you in Court. They may agree to something like this.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
Hello again. This is a courtesy check in to see if you needed anything else in regards ***** ***** question because you never rated positively. I am simply touching base. Let me know. Thanks!
