[TechAssist] Re: RCA ASC Update:

If that is the case...there is one good reason to stay away from it.
Although I have never heard the term"they can't pin down what caused it, how
can they sue you for being the possible cause of the fire".
    That just doesn't ring true to me, but I guess if you don't have a big
Insurance behind you, you could be guilty, until proven innocent.;-)
    Stranger things are happening these days with Lawsuits, so nothing
surprises me anymore.
    That's almost like getting a rock thrown through your window, you don't
exactly which neighbour did it, so you sue the whole block.
