On March 20 I made the announcement that this website will have to cease operations and take down many of its resources due to a lack of funding. I was in despair because the last few donation drives had been insufficient to sustain our operations.
What I did not anticipate was the generosity of a few key individuals and organizations who have collectively pulled it out of the grave over the last few days. For that, I’d like to give a special thank you to FACE and SAVE (in addition to all the great work they are already doing), as well as to certain individuals who have generously donated but may wish to remain unnamed. Without them this project would have ended, further innovations would have been left in limbo, and other organizations would be left to re-invent the wheel.
The Lawsuits database has already been brought back online at a new link. Our other databases will be restored over the next several weeks. I am developing several advanced features for these databases that no one has seen yet, and those will be added over time.
The announcement to close has been removed from this website. We are still sitting at about 80% of our funding needs for the first half of 2016, and the donation link is still available here. If you are interested in donating, please do.
Lastly, it is clear that some changes will need to be made internally to ensure the long-term sustainability of this project and mitigate against risk. That is our highest agenda over the next several months.
Thank you for supporting this website. We will continue. And we’ll make it better than ever.
