The suit names three of the former general partners, including CEO Dick Kinzel, Cedar Point GM Dan Keller and Richard Collingwood, corporate VP of administration.

I'm not sure I follow this (the reorg didn't make particular sense to me in the first place). How are you entitled to distributions when you don't own the stock?

Just quick first impression: sounds to me like "hey we got out too early and missed some cash, so we'll sue to get our piece of the pie ... "

I think that this is one for the lawyers to decide. Lots of complex detailed legal issues.

It all depends on the language of their contracts. When CF reorganized in 2000 and liquidated CFMC, Albino and Paul should have received some money. How much or when would be up to the language of the contract to decide.

Right, and you know this because you read the contracts.

Will you please read what I have written? Contracts contain language, and the language will dictate what the outcome of this lawsuit is. If you're referring to my blanket statement that Paul and Albino should receive "some money," that is pretty clear since they were investors in CFMC, and they DID receive "some money." They did not receive ALL of the money they think they are entitled to, and THAT is up to the contracts to decide.
