  1. I cannot open the last reading (as in, the screen turns gray, and there is no article to find). Can you please put the right link on, since there is no title given, I cannot search it myself either..

    • Nike,

      There was actually a mess up with the formatting. The two articles that begin with “Litigating” are one and the same. On my computer I was able to open up both, but as I said they are actually the same document. Please try again.
