There is no mechanism in this list (Theforum) to make a formal 
decision about reimbursing Dan, at least none that I can see.  OTOH, 
we could start an informal collection perhaps.  For example, we could 
donate to Dan's PayPal account, if that would be helpful.  Dan could 
provide a copy of the bill and we could all pass the hat...

In any case I think many of us would be willing to help spread the 
burden out in whatever way we can, whether through an official 
reimbursing via BoD or by "passing the hat."  I'd prefer the former 
but will gladly participate in the latter.

Whether or not Dan is reimbursed for previous legal costs, and how, 
should have no effect on whether Evolt wants or needs legal counsel 
in the future.  That's a separate issue.

As for the "consultant" issue, many of us have worked as staff and 
BoD for other nonprofit organizations including (but not limited to) 
me, Martin, and RonL.  IOW, several of us have experience in this 
area. We are sharing what we know.  "Free" consulting is part of what 
Evolt is about.
