It must be hard to be an international swimming star. It must distract one from one's training when lawyers interrupt practice schedules to obtain signatures for plaintiff filings on lawsuits, supeonas, etc.

"Richard Foster, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said Samsung's procedures "consisted of sending an email to some of the plaintiffs, in which they were told of the Genome Project and advised that they would be a part of the project unless they 'opted out.'""

Well that's pretty lame!:2cents:
