give us back your fee, or we'll sue

the bankruptcy trustee of lingua franca is demanding tha authors give back the money they were paid for the work they performed or else… to me, this seems silly, now i can see that there are 'secured interests' but they have to fight over the money that's left, not the money that's gone. people get paid to do their job, once they are paid, that is that. Mr. Geltzer, the trustee, needs to learn that capitalism has ethics.
