Reeves Nelson's Threat to Sue SI: Two Months of Silence and Inaction

It's now been two months since the Sports Illustrated article about the problems on the basketball team. We then heard from the lawyers for Reeves Nelson, who demanded an apology and a retraction and all that from the magazine. Well, as part of my on-going public service efforts, I again expended a massive amount of time doing careful research by entering "Reeves Nelson" on the search thingy on Yahoo and then clicking "search." I did the same thing a month ago. The results of each search are shown in paraphrase after the jump. If the lawyers have filed their lawsuit, it must have used the same sort of paper as the "Double Secret Probation" of Dean Wormer, because I couldn't find it.

I really want that lawsuit to get filed, so we can help the lawyers by taking Chianti Dan's deposition.

Here's what I found:
