Sorry, EquineDriver has been here as a COTHer for quite a while and if I were her, I'd be lying low too. The Hounds of COTH and the World At Large could be at her throat right now knowing that she's compiling data.
Better to hunker down and ride out the storm until it's legal conclusion than risk ruining everything and see THAT woman get away with it again.

I may be proven wrong, but given that all of Jill's alters and her PMs came across as being quite clearly wacky; I did not get them same impression from any of Equine Driver's posts at all.
Unfortunately, I don't think criminal investigators would necessarily provide updates on an ongoing investigation; so if ED packaged up the info and forwarded it to the investigators, they wouldn't necessarily follow up with her beyond confirming receipt of the info.
Hopefully, ED will at least let us know that she is okay.

It's all complete speculation, but it is possible that there was no chance for a class action suit, at all.
In which case, no one wants to come back here and state that it was all for naught.
The lawsuit may be a bust but no way this thread could ever be for naught. It's not perfect as there are obviously still some people at least attempting to do business with Jill Burnell but I think the numbers are less than they would have been without this thread.
I don't really blame Equinedriver for dropping the project. Right before she quit posting on this thread, someone, or two posters, had (and this is what I thought) pretty rudely doubted her credibility in several posts. I doubt this gave her much encouragement to continue what was to be a long, drawn-out project needing much effort. I don't doubt that she was also privately threatened. It's also possible that the moderators stepped in with some warnings.
perhaps those that are deep in this issue should try to contact ED OR start a new thread asking for folks who would like to form a committee of some sort and then re visit the idea of asking for submissions from folks who were wronged.....
it seems that Jill is out of the picture right now due to lack if internet connection?
eta I cant imagine someone with no history of being wronged would want to be involved... so it seems that folks who are involved need to be the ones doing the work....
I didn't say the thread was unhelpful; I meant that if I was in ED's shoes, and I said I would do something and it didn't pan out, I probably wouldn't come back here and post that there was no hope of a lawsuit. It wouldn't be worth it to get the criticism and arm chair quarterbacking, IMO.
Of course this thread was a wakeup call for a lot of people. It's good that it's here, and the ripples will be felt for years to come, I am sure.
I must say it is a bit disconcerting that there has been no word from ED.
Even it ED cannot divulge detailed info a "hi...I'm still here and working on this and cannot discuss it"...would be very good to hear so for many who have spend so much time coming forward on this thread.
