Boback files suit against the FTC and his cause of action is "shakedown"?  LOL I've gone to law school and I don't ever recall seeing that listed in any serious complaint.  One thing is for sure, Boback's line of offense certainly brings the concept of an affirmative defense to an art level -it is very creative and very obtuse at the same time.
