    I guess this goes to show how long litigation takes, considering all of these actions were taking place 6+ years ago. Something similar happened just recently to Jeremy Johnson, who received over $280 million and has now settled and surrendered millions and is sentenced to 11 years in prison. It'll be interesting to see how much of that $30 million they'll actually be able to collect. Jesse Willms reached a $359 million settlement for something similar, but the FTC ended up only collecting on $991,000.
