When the news first came out, in 2015, that Van's Aircraft was sued for a considerable amount of money and that the law firm pressing the action was being VERY public about it, many feared the worst.

Infamous RV-10 Lawsuit Against Van's Aircraft Dismissed

When the news first came out, in 2015, that Van's Aircraft was sued for a considerable amount of money and that the law firm pressing the action was being VERY public about it, many feared the worst.
