MR. TENPAS: Well, let me just say this has been a hard fought matter. We estimate that at the Department of Justice we have expended in excess of 52,000 attorney hours on this matter.

MR. TENPAS: I don't want to speak for AEP. You can ask them about that, but certainly it would be my experience that having a firm trial date tends to focus the attention of all parties on whether there is an agr
