Actually, Congress had already directed the Treasury Department to make 
money accessible. That was what the lawsuit was about. And given that 
the ACB prevailed, I would have to say it is fairly silly for you to 
claim it was flawed or that it was a publicity stunt -- unless you think 
the Supreme Court of the United States is in the habit of upholding 
flawed publicity stunts.
